Social Work program discusses Children in Poverty


Students in Alvernia University's social work program invited area professionals and students to a timely seminar entitled "Children in Poverty" last week. The students began planning the seminar last September.   

Speakers included George M. Kovarie, executive director of Berks County Children and Youth Services, and Michele A. Kupres-Mace, in-home services supervisor for Berks County Children and Youth Services.

Pictures drawn by children in the City's Head Start program were available for donations at the seminar. Head Start is designed to help break the cycle of poverty by meeting the social, emotional, health, nutritional, and psychological needs of preschool children of low-income families.
