Who needs our help you ask? Our neighbors, families and friends need our help. Many jobs have been lost in our area for a number of years. Southeast Iowa has some of the highest unemployment rates in the state. People are struggling to make ends meet, pay bills, feed their families and find employment. The reality is we have many families who are in dire need right now.
Community Action has been helping people become self-sufficient for 46 years. We have many programs and many different ways that we assist people. When someone comes to us needing assistance we have trained Family Development Specialists who assist that person in finding obstacles that keep them from being self-sufficient. They also help them set goals in order to succeed. We have had thousands of success stories in the 46 years we have been serving southeast Iowa and we want to continue to provide quality services to our communities.
It is crucial in this economy that we continue to get donations so we can help people help themselves. The limited resources that are now available due to federal and state budget cuts makes it crucial that we get donations today, but more importantly the people that we assist to become self-sufficient need it.
What can you do? You can make a donation and help a friend, family member or neighbor in your community. Thank you.
