Voices of Maine

June 28, 2008 - TRC

Facilitators will lead a focus group the primary objective of which is sharing the effects of poverty on the individuals or their families. The group will meet at the Penquis office at 50 North Street in Dover-Foxcroft on July 7th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Each family will receive a $50.00 stipend to offset expenses of travel, child care, etc. for participating and a light supper will be served.

We would like a real cross section of families. At the present time we seem to be deficient in male participants and persons/family heads under the age of 30.

If you would like to participate and become part of the Voices of Maine speaking for all our income challenged families as we continue to work to improve our state please call Penquis at 564-7116 for more information.

Participate and speak to us about what poverty has been like in your life.
