Effective Charity & Freedom from Welfare

True charity is most effective when local organizations are working together, as seamlessly as possible, to ensure that we are not unknowingly fostering a dependency model of care. Learn about the True Charity Initiative and the model of empowerment used by Watered Gardens Rescue Mission, a CharityTracker network. James shares the processes and tools they use to help people experience freedom from welfare through connection, education and policy change.
