The Problem

Why Poverty Management
Doesn't Work

Focus on Managing Poverty: The system concentrates on managing poverty rather than actively working to alleviate it.

Lack of Coordination: Programs often operate independently, resulting in unpredictable and unreliable outcomes.

Absence of Accountability: There is no accountability for reducing poverty rates, leading to persistent service gaps.

Funding and Regulatory Constraints: Organizations are limited by funding and regulations, hindering their ability to help individuals break the cycle of poverty.

Inefficient Service Delivery: The delivery of services is outdated and uncoordinated, making it difficult for individuals to receive help.

Isolation of Agencies: Agencies and service providers work in isolation and competition, impeding collaboration.

Limited Access for the Poor: Individuals in poverty often lack the resources to access necessary programs and services.

No Coordinated Advancement Efforts: There is a lack of coordinated efforts to help individuals progress from poverty to self-sufficiency.

Need for Cultural Shift: A significant cultural shift is needed within organizations to promote long-term outcomes in poverty reduction.

The Solution

The Poverty Alleviation System Mental Model

Our aim is to elevate families and individuals to a level above 225% of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL), as we believe this is a sustainable target for long-term stability.

Why Our System For Poverty Alleviation


Communities like Upper Cumberland, TN, and St Mary's, MD are partnering with us as pioneers in transforming their approach to poverty. Our poverty alleviation system fosters teams that are highly accountable for supporting individuals through all five stages of moving out of poverty. Identified system barriers and service gaps are addressed by a collective impact team dedicated to finding solutions. The success of this initiative is largely due to the buy-in and active involvement of individuals within the community, ensuring a collaborative effort toward sustainable change.

System Steps

Step 1 · Create the Pilot

In this initial step, we concentrate on all aspects of creating the pilot. This includes crafting your essential vision, securing resources, determining the pilot budget, establishing your PAS teams and community, providing training, and developing a data collection system and metrics.

Step 2 · Launch the Pilot

In this next step, we focus on creating comprehensive success pathways for participants, encompassing education, employment, and social capital. We onboard participants, providing them with the tools and resources needed to thrive. By addressing educational opportunities, enhancing employment prospects, and fostering social connections, we pave the way for their journey to long-term prosperity.

Step 3 · Measure the Pilot

Next, we establish primary and secondary metrics to measure participant plan completion rates. We identify systemic gaps and barriers, secure extended pilot funding, and address funding for the cliff effect crisis. Finally, we implement a regular data analysis cycle.

Step 4 · Sustain the Pilot

In this step, the focus on securing sustainable funding, identifying the next generation of leaders, preparing for potential crises within the pilot, advocating for policy changes, investing in capacity building and sustainability planning, and engaging in continuous learning and adaptation.

Step 5 · Scale the Pilot

In this step, we focus on scaling high-impact strategies, eliminating low-impact strategies, streamlining processes and procedures, building organizational capacity, standardizing best practices, and engaging in cross-sector partnerships.

The Poverty Alleviation System Structure

Our program guides communities through a 12-month journey, outlining five essential steps to implement our system effectively. To ensure success, each Poverty Alleviation System (PAS) must establish three key teams: a Leadership Team, a Collaboration Team, and a Prosperity Team. These teams collaborate with participants to not only achieve their personal goals but also to address and manage systemic barriers and gaps.

In addition to access to tools and training, communities engaged in the Poverty Alleviation System (PAS) will benefit from strategic coaching, grant writing assistance, and marketing support from the PAS team, enhancing their capacity to make a meaningful difference.
