In our community, thousands of residents have difficulty meeting basic needs such as housing, food, and healthcare. These challenges only increased for individuals and families because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But what does it actually mean to live in poverty in Newaygo County? To have your finances derailed by an unexpected expense? To work multiple jobs and still struggle to make ends meet? To feel unheard or invisible in your own community? Join us virtually on April 22 to hear honest stories about life in the margins in our community.
