Income

"Improve financial stability and self-sufficiency."

Income Goal: All Mahaska County residents are economically stable and self-sufficient.

Objective: UWMC will support programs that give food, shelter, transportation, and healthcare assistance, and support financial education and debt reduction.

Our Work:

  • Help area agencies and families in need through Day of Caring, where local volunteers spend a day cleaning, painting, building, and gardening at projects throughout our community. 

  • Provide free preparation of income tax returns for low-income families through our VITA Tax Site

  • Continue to support Oskaloosa Rides to help increase access to retail, healthcare, and other services to those without a vehicle. 

  • Partner with agencies that address our objective through financial giving and other supports.

Looking Forward

  • Work with stakeholders to expand community support programs that deal with bringing people out of poverty.
