How Non-Profits and Private Charities Can More Effectively Lift People Out of Poverty


There are many well-intentioned programs serving the homeless in California, but private charities and non-profits are just as effective – if not more so – in getting people back on their feet.  PRI’s Kerry Jackson and Damon Dunn, Michele Steeb of Saint John’s Program for Real Change, and Deacon Jim Vargas of Father Joe’s Villages, share their experiences on how out-of-the-box thinking can help alleviate poverty.  Part 4 of our 4-part series on how free-market ideas can build new, diverse coalitions in California.  Recorded at PRI’s “California Ideas in Action” conference in Sacramento.
