Nonprofits and Poverty Research

This research, with Ines W. Jindra and University of Amsterdam sociologist Bowen Paulle, focuses on how antipoverty nonprofits work with the poor.  This research has been ongoing since 2010, and involves over one dozen nonprofits, most involved in “developmental relationships.” Nationwide, many nonprofits are shifting to this model, an important but controversial development in the war on poverty.

Publications are forthcoming, and will also include a book on how nonprofits use “developmental relationships” to help people get out of poverty or to attain more life stability.
