SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - The growing problem of homelessness and poverty around Siouxland and across the country is hard to ignore, and it's a problem one local group is facing head-on.
The Micah project's goal is work together as a community to help solve the underlying problems that cause these issues.
Thursday, the project held a workshop to discuss the problem and possible solutions.
Micah Project's director says it's something we have to work together to fix.
"It does take the community to do this, and not look to the government or outside ourselves to take care of it. But believe we can do this together," said Patricia Johnson, Micah Project Director.
Reverend Tronn Moller lead the discussion Thursday.
He's participated in more than 150 events like this one all across the country.
"There's some way that we can get each other and come to some sort of agreement on how to work on homelessness, poverty and other issues that effects us in Sioux City and around the country," said Reverend Tronn Moller of Faith and Community Development, Inc.
