Eat, Drink, and Be Awesome
Last year Sieda Community Action helped nearly 7,000 low-income families (comprised of nearly 16,000 individual family members) through our multifaceted approach to addressing the causes and conditions of poverty in Appanoose, Davis, Jefferson, Keokuk, Mahaska, Van Buren and Wapello Counties. This approach emphasizes the core components of education, economic support, and health and well-being.
At Sieda Community Action, we believe a strong education foundation is the key to long-term success. There is significant correlation between educational attainment and poverty, and Sieda emphasizes education through our Head Start preschool program, Parents as Teachers, Maternal and Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting program, and Substance Abuse Prevention and Education.
We believe the basic needs of individuals and families must be met before they are able to focus their energy or assets on gaining the skills and resources to become self-sufficient. Economic supports provide an important scaffold for individuals as they work to move from poverty toward financial stability. Sieda Community Action provides economic support to families in our service area through programs like the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, the Tenant Based Rental Assistance program, SHARE, Seeds of Hope, and crisis services.
We believe physical health and mental health have a major impact on a family’s ability to thrive. Adverse childhood experiences, substance use and abuse, physical and mental illness threaten families’ ability to be self-sufficient. Sieda Community Action addresses health and well-being through our Behavioral Health and Treatment Services programs, Head Start, Parents as Teachers, and Maternal and Infant Early Childhood Home Visitation program.
On March 23, we’ll be hosting our first banquet and silent auction to celebrate our accomplishments and help build Sieda Community Action’s endowment to ensure future success. We invite you to attend. Please join us for an evening of music, food, and fellowship as we celebrate Sieda Community Action’s work and the positive impact we have in the communities we serve.
