Prosperity Initiative Seeking To Raise Awareness

The Rapid City Prosperity Initiative is raising awareness by educating students and community members about poverty this month, reports KOTA.

The Initiative was created by the John T. Vucurevich Foundation, and runs with help from Catholic Social Services and Love, Inc.  The Initiative seeks to break the cycle of poverty by teaching about poverty stereotypes and generating awareness of the barriers in dealing with poverty.

Meetings will be held at the Dahl Fine Arts Center on March 31st at noon and 6 p.m.
