Around this time last year, Stark Community Foundation and United Way of Greater Stark County in partnership with The Center for Community Solutions released the 2019 Stark County Community Assessment, a data report of more than 50 indicators of health, social and economic conditions.
As we drilled down into our community’s data, we noticed that every single issue of concern was related to poverty in some way. In particular, child poverty rates in our community demand our increased attention. Next week, we will release Protecting Stark’s Future: A Call to Coordinate Child Poverty Strategies, a report that outlines why we need to intentionally work together to target our efforts and resources to reduce child poverty in our community, and identifies actions that need to be taken at the neighborhood level to improve conditions for Stark County residents.
Join us Wednesday, December 2 at 10:30 a.m. for a webinar where we will share highlights from the new data-driven report and announce a new funding cycle to support child poverty reduction plans.
