The concept of "bridging" and mentoring is strongly presented, and many individual, organizational and systemic suggestions are made by the authors. This is an excellent resource for people who wish to or need to broaden their awareness of the "hidden rules" of each economic class, and how to provide more effective assistance to those persons wishing to improve their economic and educational status, without judgment. I highly recommend this book.
This book answers questions,gives direction,teaches you how to communicate
With the person of poverty.
