Does your helping hurt? Could your best attempts at helping actually be harming the poor? Find out why good intentions aren’t always enough—and what you can do about it.
Poverty. It’s complicated.


What are the root causes of poverty? What are appropriate solutions to eradicate poverty? Is there a wrong way to help others? Churches and individuals are called to care for the poor, but can our good intentions have unintended consequences? The Helping Without Hurting Conference dives into these questions and more.

Join Dr. Brian Fikkert, co-author of When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor.
