Think Tank was established in 2006 in Springfield, Ohio to offer training and coaching for organizations serving families and communities impacted by poverty. The vision was to alleviate poverty by building the capacity of organizations to be sustainable and work together to best serve vulnerable citizens. Along the way we discovered that many attempts to address poverty were made without the voices and involvement of people who were themselves experiencing poverty. As a result, Think Tank has centered our work on strategies that equip organizations to better understand poverty and strengthen the social fabric of communities through building relationships across economic lines. In just ten years we have expanded our scope from a regional training center to one that spans across a network of national members and partners.
