CADILLAC – Various human service agencies in Wexford and Missaukee counties will be key in finding out poverty conditions and needs for the two counties.
Northern Lakes Community Mental Health Community Collaborative Coordinator Ken Nydam said the survey and the results will be used by the Coalition for Poverty Reduction to formulate a report.
“In order to make a report to the community, we are collecting the data that will give us that information. That is done through a survey,” Nydam said. “We are going to all the agencies with interaction with people on or near poverty level. The survey is pretty comprehensive and covers all areas of life.”
