“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.” ~Nelson Mandela
May is Community Action Month, a time to honor the important work of Community Action Agencies around the country to eradicate poverty. GROW South Dakota is one of approximately 1000 Community Action Agencies around the nation. This network of organizations helps empower people to achieve self-sufficiency.
