Cultural Competence Tips from Georgetown University Training Institutes

By: Mary Wolfe, Cultural & Linguistic Competence Coordinator

FAST TRAC staff recently attended Georgetown University’s Training Institutes.  At the Institutes, we learned about a program that works within the faith-based community, called Open Table.  The Open Table model provides faith communities with a proven process to transform individuals and families in poverty.  The mission is to train congregations and their members, through the Open Table model, to partner their vocational and life experiences with people in poverty to develop and implement plans that create sustainability and wholeness.  For more information
