Ending poverty requires a wide perspective and responsive programs. The sooner we can intervene, the better. In childhood, that means providing good education, nutritious food, and a safe home. For low-income adults, it’s lowering the burden and helping them meet their basic needs. When they’re given a fair chance, people can lead better lives.
We work with rural and urban communities throughout Marion-Polk, while offering limited assistance to other counties. To see if a specific service is available in your area, please visit the relevant program page.
“Teacher Myrna and inclusion specialist Ashley helped my son learn self-regulation. I’m truly grateful for all the support they gave my son. He is walking away from the program with social skills that will last his whole life. I am forever grateful.”
