Student Guide Builders


La Salle as a Community

What drives us to serve?


This Guide is a collaboration between LSA Providence students & faculty

to raise awareness about poverty & the challenges we are facing together. 

It is our hope to spark inspiration to make powerful positive change

locally, nationally, and even internationally ! 

Please visit often, learn, and answer the Polls on each page

so we can gauge what our community is thinking!

Thank you. General Council Reflection 7: 2021-22: E-DOCUMENT: Reflection



 " . . . I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today. . . "


Economic: Refers to the lack of basic financial resources needed for a family to function at the average level of other families in the community.  For the United States specific guidelines are provided by the Department of Health and Human resources as to what constitutes economic poverty and low income.


Educational: Refers to significant differences in cognitive style or development, past school history, or social/emotional developments that significantly impede a person being able to function in the regular learning environments without supports or accommodations.


Affective: Refers to a significant lack of the personal, psychological, social and emotional resources and competencies to be able to meet normal development expectations.  Poverty in this area can lead to lifelong emotional and social maladjustment impeding the person from being a contributing member of the community.


Poverty of Values: Refers to a lack in appreciation of local social norms, spirituality, or of the responsibility to the larger world community that all persons have.


At some point(s) in everyone's life, poverty appears requiring:

respect, support, and healing
