Impacting Poverty

Phil Hong Poster Presentation Grant
Dr. Philip Hong and his colleagues traveled to Dublin, Ireland this summer to present and participate in a poster session at the Joint World Conference on Social Work, Education and Social Development. Their presentation: “Teams, Tools and Hope-Enhancement Strategies: A Multifaceted Approach to Impacting Poverty,” focused on the findings from research studies conducted by Dr. Swanson and Dr. Hong on the tools, processes and outcomes of Pathway of Hope (POH), including the impact of increased hope and integration of spiritual care on positive movement toward increased stability and sufficiency. Their presentations generated rich discussion with Salvation Army personnel from Norway to Hong Kong who were interested in learning about POH. As a result the Lilly Endowment has awarded The Salvation Army “Nationally”, a $7 million-three year gift and an additional $3 million match/incentive funding. See more details
