New Details on Poverty Study in Stone, Taney Counties

From Ozarks First

New details are coming out about the first-ever comprehensive study on poverty and health in Stone and Taney counties.

In September, the community assessment on poverty began.

A total of 18 leaders of businesses, agencies and ministries met to determine what it would take to get started on an effort to address the systemic issues.

After a consulting company analyzes the data,  residents will have a chance to weigh in on the issue next February.

After a listening tour recommendations will be given to address the problem.

At least 15 percent of people living in Stone and Taney counties live in poverty.
