Micah Project works to fight Sioux City's poverty problem

Posted:

Sioux City community members are coming together to tackle the city's poverty problem.

Rev. Pat Johnson, the director of the Micah Project, says the issue is a bigger problem than a lot of us might realize. That's why she says the members of the faith community and the public/private sector are teaming up to try to make a difference.

She says the group is working with an action plan that focuses on five important goals. The first she says is a centralized community resource campus. If established, it would allow for easier access to needed services and provide an avenue for better communication between agencies.

The second involves what she calls desirable, safe and affordable housing. The third is a coordinated intake and referral system.

The fourth and fifth goals include developing entrepreneurial and vocational pathways to success and having a voice at the table for everyone.
