In President Obama’s State of the Union Address, he said, “no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty.” yet, that is the reality for thousands of hard-working residents throughout the nation and in Montgomery County. What will federal budget cuts mean for them?

This year’s May 1 Caregivers Conference will take place during a time of growing need and concern about the impact of sequestration. What will it mean for those who serve the poor, the unemployed, and the undocumented? Will we have to make hard choices about who can be served, how often and in what ways?

Join us on May 1 for an interactive discussion about our responses to poverty, now and in the days ahead. We will ask experts hard questions about topics such as values and setting boundaries. We will ask ourselves questions, even when we may not have all the answers. Come be a part of the discussion on May 1.

A Department of Health and Human Services worker shares what she sees are the benefits of attending the Caregivers Conference:

“During various sessions, I had the opportunity to identify and discuss problems, exchange and share ideas, and come up with an optimum solution… Your conferences provide up to date information and reflect your concern for the community in need. From speaking with various people in attendance, all voice their appreciation of the Interfaith Caregivers Conference…I look forward to attending the 17th Annual Caregivers Conference.”

Plenary Guests include: Dr. Virletta Bryant, J.C. Hayward, Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett, Dr. Sondra Ely Wheeler

This program is approved for (3.0) Category II CEUs.
