Northwest Project maintenance classes meet at the Dream Center on Wednesday nights. Childcare provided. Dinner starts at 5:30 p.m., with classes starting at 6.
The goal of The Northwest Project is to pilot strategies over a five-year period to help families overcome the challenges that have kept them living in poverty and sustain their long-term success in emerging from those circumstances. The project includes a focus on 10 key areas for stability. Areas include: accountability, parent training, reliable transportation, affordable housing, quality childcare, budgeting/banking, financial planning, job training/education, resolved legal issues, and health and wellbeing.
The Community Foundation of the Ozarks selected northwest Springfield for this project because much of the area exceeds the city’s overall 25.6 percent poverty rate. In addition, the privately funded Northwest Project will take place in concert with the City of Springfield’s focus on improving public safety, infrastructure and chronic nuisance properties in this geographic area.
The Northwest Project is a collaboration among Missouri State University, Drury University, and Drew Lewis Foundation.
