Speaker: Nathan Mandsager, Associate Executive Director, Schenectady Works, City Mission 

Bridges Out of Poverty workshop provides both the social service provider and the community member key lessons in dealing with individuals from poverty.

This workshop is based on the book Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities, a collaboration between Ruby K. Payne, Phillip DeVol, and Terie Dreussi Smith. This workshop is designed for audiences of employers, community organizations, law enforcement, counselors, health care and social service providers.

2019’s Conference Highlights

Habitation Service

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 

Speaker: Beau Noblitt, Owner, Chick-fil-A

About the speaker: When Beau Noblitt was in college, he was on a track that would enable him to get into medical school to one day become a pediatrician. Then, he met Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, and the course of his life was forever changed When Truett spoke of Chick-fil-A, he explained, “We’re in the people business … We got out of the chicken business a long time ago. We simply use chicken as an avenue to reach people.’” The minute he heard that, Beau felt inspired about a possible career opportunity where he could do exactly what he had wanted to do all along — own his own business and serve children. Beau, who currently owns two Chick-fil-As, began his career with the organization when he was a sophomore. He realized early on that he could indeed enjoy a challenging career there while impacting the lives of others; those with whom he works, as well as those on the other side of the counter. Beau has learned a great deal in his journey with Chick-fil-A over the years, but the biggest lesson he’s learned is that in order to fulfill one’s God-given calling, in any career, one must always treat others with honor, dignity and respect — in all situations. The second thing he’s learned is that if you give your absolute best each day you will certainly make an impact where God has placed you. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Kate for 14 years. They have three children; Landon (8), Georgia (5), and Lincoln (2).
