Fighting Poverty One Step at A Time

While it isn’t always visible, poverty is a reality for many in Sioux City. In fact, approximately 15 percent of residents in our community live below the federal poverty level.

Poverty can be isolating. Those who suffer often feel alone. We are here to provide help and hope.


How We Help Overcome Poverty

Rent and Utilities Assistance
Often the largest bills each month are for rent and utilities. Getting help with a daunting bill payment even just once can turn the tide and help an individual or family reach financial stability again. 

Thanksgiving and Christmas Assistance
The holidays can put an even greater strain on an already-tight budget. We ensure the holidays are bright and worry-free for adults and children alike by providing food baskets at Thanksgiving and toys and food at Christmas to families in need.

Food Programs
Because hunger is one of the most serious effects of poverty, we offer a food pantry to help individuals and families close the gap each month. Learn more about how we help cure hunger.

Pathway of Hope
The goal of Pathway of Hope is to guide families with children 18 years and younger through crisis and instability to a place of security in order to ultimately break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. We offer strengths-based casework, providing services such as:

  • financial counseling and planning
  • goal setting with manageable action steps
  • job training, referrals and employment assistance
  • assistance with securing housing and child care
  • emotional and spiritual support 

Pathway of Hope works with people where they are, offering practical guidance to help families overcome obstacles and achieve their big-picture goals, one step at a time.
