DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWWL) – Dubuque is launching a program to help address poverty in the city. It’s called “Gaining Opportunities” or “GO.”
The GO program replaces the Circles Initiative previously used by the Housing and Community Development Department.
The program aims to help individuals “address the lack of resources which contribute to living in poverty.”
GO participants can work on six key community-building tracks to help improve their situation. These tracks include education, money management, employment and more.
According to the city of Dubuque, GO acts as a stand-alone program, but there are two other programs embedded within the GO model. Those two programs are “Getting Ahead in the Workplace” and “Family Self-Sufficiency.”
