How does poverty affect our counties? Does poverty fit into a simple definition? Can you see it? As a community, we think we know those we help. Do we? Do we understand the many faces of poverty?

Join the conversation!

August 3rd through the 14th, Sieda Community Action would like to take this opportunity to hear from those in our counties. Share your experiences and your organization’s involvement in the community.

Take this time to enjoy lunch and learn how poverty affects our well-being and the community. Natalie Aeschliman, the Outreach, and Data Specialist at Sieda will explore with you the many faces of poverty and the war on poverty. For more information call Natalie at 641-682-8741 ext. 171.
