Starkville Bridges out of Poverty

The mission of Starkville Bridges Out of Poverty (Starkville Bridges) is to eradicate poverty in Oktibbeha County by providing education and resources for people in poverty to transition into the middle-class. Starkville Bridges breaks down existing paradigms about poverty and seeks to bridge the middle-class with low-income citizens, so they can understand and learn each other’s hidden rules for the overall betterment of the community.
