"Flores’ story is just one example of how Attack Poverty serves its neighbors. It offers adults courses in GED prep, faith and finance, job readiness, ESL, technology workshops, and marriage and parenting. It provides in-school support to teachers, helps the homeless and is currently working with another organization to bring community members into an existing community garden.
Baudoin said Attack Poverty tries to apply a holistic approach in all it does. For example, its team doesn’t just help the child falling behind in school: they will talk to their parents to find out what’s going on in their home. Sometimes, they are working up to three jobs to make ends meet and feel held back by their poor English skills or not having a high school diploma. Programs can address some of those needs."
