In follow-up to “Big Impact, Small Cities”, a program presented by AGM in MetroWest in September 2012, we recently came across this article of interest. At that program, Stephen Pratt, Director of Consulting for Root Cause, presented findings from his article Creating Big Impact in Small Cities, noting that “philanthropy has not yet caught up to the changing demographics of poverty.”

This article, Poverty in New England - It's a Suburban Thing by Elizabeth Kneebone, The Brookings Institution, which was published in Communities & Banking, by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, touches upon many of the same themes. We welcome your feedback, input and thoughts on what work is taking place at your organization in relation to the issues expressed here.
