Good afternoon, all!

I wanted to let you know that tomorrow’s Poverty on the Palouse General Meeting is being redirected. Several participants of the steering committee along with many community members are interested in participating in the speaker series at the University of Idaho, featuring Temple Grandin. Countless people have or work with children or adults on the spectrum. Being low-income is very difficult for a number of reasons. When dealing with additional struggles like labels and stigmas toward autism or ADHD it can create more hardship. Many of the greatest minds are classified or thought as autistic of some kind- this is not a downfall of who you are. Come hear Temple’s empowering speech with focus on the positive side of autism and her work utilizing her strengths.

On updates from the Steering Committee. The notes from yesterday’s meeting have been posted online (https://www.ci.moscow.id.us/181/Poverty-on-the-Palouse); the Steering Committee is continuing to work on collecting data from existing agencies to provide an updated list of resources on the Palouse (https://www.ci.moscow.id.us/BusinessDirectoryII.aspx?lngBusinessCategoryID=27); and a new Facebook page has been developed for Poverty on the Palouse (https://www.facebook.com/PovertyOnThePalouse/).

The next General Meeting will be held on Thursday, December 20th at 5:30 pm at Moscow City Hall (206 East Third).



Best,
DJ
