Cindy Alltop, Emily Forni, Audrie Flores, and Jason Voogd, all of Sheridan, were honored at a Graduation Ceremony and reception Wednesday morning.

The Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’ by World program is based on the principles in Dr. Ruby Payne’s, Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities. The “Getting Ahead” program was developed for small groups to examine the impact of poverty on themselves and their community.

This class was a collaboration between the Tripartite Board, CVC, Homer A. and Mildred S. Scott Foundation, Drug Court, Workforce Services, YMCA, and the Free Clinic. spokesperson Cathi Kindt tells us what the next step is for each participant.

The program is not about “fixing” people. It is to give these individuals tools so they can create plans to build their future story.

29-year-old Audrie Flores came to the program via Sheridan County Drug Court. She says she has learned a lot, particularly in how to combat experiencing what she terms “the tyranny of the moment” that is a symptom of living in poverty.

Flores currently works two jobs, and her individual plan, as Kindt mentioned, is taking the steps to find transportation to make it to those jobs. Being in the program with the other three graduates made a big difference.

The participants in the current program have been attending classes 2 hours/week for the past sixteen weeks.
