Commissioners Announce Collaboration to Address Poverty
This morning, the Franklin County Commissioners announced a new collaboration with the Columbus Partnership to begin to address poverty in Central Ohio in a systematic way. The initiative began last fall with the gathering of a steering committee of local non-profit, government, business, community, and religious leaders and dozens of meetings with hundreds of local residents who are living in poverty. The result is the Franklin County Rise Together Blueprint, which includes 120 goals and action steps to begin to address poverty more effectively.
