KVCAP: Community Investors Initiative...

Jul 3, 2016 by

Hello! Thank you for considering joining the Community Investors Initiative, which is hosted by The Poverty Action Coalition. The Poverty Action Coalition is a local group of people who came together to alleviate poverty, and the Community Investors Initiative is our first major project. Community Investors are people like you who are willing to receive weekly e-mails people in need. The people we feature in our e-mails have shown that they are facing a specific barrier to maintaining their current quality of life or moving out of poverty. Every request we send out is reviewed by the Community Investors Committee to insure that all other resources have been explored before we ask you for help. This is in line with our belief that investing in our most vulnerable community members makes the entire community stronger. When we began this initiative in March...

Mar 12, 2016 by

Waterville, ME— United Way of Mid-Maine, having over 60 years experience partnering with local businesses to address the pressing needs of the people living, working, and learning in the Heart of Maine, has announced the expansion of these collaborative efforts with the launching of a new “365 Small Business Circle” program.

Community Investors Initiative

Jun 24, 2015 by

Hello! The Poverty Action Coalition, a local group of people who came together to alleviate poverty in Waterville, has created a new initiative called the Community Investors. Community Investors are members of the community who receive weekly emails about individuals or families in need who could use your help. The requests featured in these emails come from residents of Waterville who have been referred to us through KVCAP, General Assistance, or the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter. These agencies sit on the Community Investors Committee, which convenes to insure that the people making requests face a significant barrier to maintaining their current quality of life or moving out of poverty. The Community Investors Initiative has only been in place for a few months, but in that short period of time we have helped several families meet...
