The Community Action Agency of Siouxland's Welcome Home Program has received a grant from our parent company.
The $6,000 award from the Powell Group Fund will assist with expenses for the Welcome Home program, which is an initiative that combines transitional housing and outreach services to get homeless families in Siouxland off the streets.
The program provides a safe, furnished place to live, clothing if needed and food. It also provides a chance to work one-on-one with a family development specialist toward self-sufficiency.
The goal is for families that qualify to have a place to sleep that evening.
