Our team had a blast at the United Way of Johnson & Washington Counties's Community Celebration! We were honored to receive the Outstanding Achievement Award alongside Neumann Monson Architects. πŸ’š

Kudos to Trisha, the entire United Way Team, and their dedicated supporters for all their hard work in our community!
My props go to the United Way of J&WC for the vital efforts in community building and volunteer advocacy. I myself am a currently studying and active member of my community, and it was through my studies that I was able to partake in a screening of an upcoming film that’s all about advocacy, community efforts, and the global impacts that the latter can have. So, I would be ecstatic to share word of this project with fellow interested advocates! The film is a documentary narrated by the astounding Michelle Rodriguez, and it’s titled The Revolution Generation: How Millennials Can Save America and the World. The film delves into the power of education, and activism, and the impact of our collective unity behind both β€” particularly among Millenials and Gen-Z, as the title suggests. The film begins by providing historical context for patterns of American calls for legislative reform in order to introduce our most recent β€œsocial turning,” which is currently taking place. Then, maintaining faithful to the documentary style, TRG offers a far-reaching and worldwide investigation of the individuals from all over the world who, through their conscious and representative actions, have developed a political voice and led enormous change. Personal subject studies from throughout the world show how love and outreach may have a major impact on social, political, and environmental change, as well as the blossoming community that results from pursuing change amongst such spheres. So, for any interested, I’ve left some more information on the films’ Earth Day release, and otherwise, I thank you once more!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Johnson County expanded the General Assistance (GA) guidelines to serve a larger number of households. GA provides short-term help to residents in extreme financial crisis. Since the expansion, the number of households assisted on a monthly basis has nearly doubled.

Through Johnson County's ARPA investment, Johnson County Social Services will hire an additional GA Specialist to meet the needs of the community. Find out more about the investment in the GA Specialist position at https://www.johnsoncountyiowa.gov/news/arpa/general-assistance.
