kNOw POVERTY HOUR is an event designed to immerse the audience into the issue of poverty in our local community and how we can all work to make a difference. It's based on the idea that the more we KNOW about poverty, the more we will be able to build a community with NO poverty. 

We open the event with some light refreshments, and eventually work our way around the CCS service center as we learn more about our programs and services through first-hand storytelling. 

Please note that this is not a fundraiser and you will not be asked for money.
