Tammy Thompson started T3 Consulting, Inc. after being out of work for a year and not being able to find another job. 
"I knew that I had skills and talents that the local non profit community needed. I won't lie though, I started out of desperation and wasn't ready. I didn't have everything I needed, financially or technically. Over the years I had to find mentors and technical training to get to a place where I am running a real business. It's ok not to know everything but we need to make sure that we are being honest about what we don't know so that we can get that information for the benefit of the people that we serve but also for our own benefit as well. 

Since primarily focus on raising awareness about poverty and how it impacts people mentally, emotionally and psychologically, I think we bring a different perspective to the issue of poverty and the people working hard to escape it. I've found over the years that there are many agencies and social service practitioners who benefit from having the information that I provide because it makes them better at what they do and as a result families who find themselves needing assistance get better services. Increased awareness also creates space to think about poverty differently and encourages the powers-that-be to be more creative and innovative in thinking about, creating and changing policy that directly impacts people living in poverty."
