Windom town hall meeting, Wednesday, aims to help city's future workforce
The American Dream is still alive, but that dream is beginning to fade for youth living in poverty in Windom and other areas.
Finding ways to help local youth - Windom's future workforce - navigate barriers is the focus of a town hall meeting at 4:30 p.m. today at the Windom Community Center.
Some facts revealed at a recent meeting were described as, "shocking," include:
In Windom, 45 percent of youth meet the criteria for being at poverty level.
In Windom, 52.2 percent of youth under age 5 live in poverty.
