Interview: Pegge McGuire Looks to Heal Community

Interview with The Corvallis Advocate:

Pegge McGuire and the Community Services Consortium don’t want to just help you catch up on your rent. They want to make the future better for you, your family, and everyone in Linn, Benton, Lincoln, and even Polk counties.

“…What we’re really trying to do is not give people a transaction. We don’t want to give you just a utility payment. We don’t want to give you just a little assistance. We don’t want to give you just resume preparation services. We want to transform your life in the way that you want it transformed to meet the goals that you have for your household.”

Topics covered: CSC scope of services; community partnerships; impact of the Oregon House Bill 2100; the Community Action mission of ‘ending poverty’ and if it’s achievable; local homelessness and solutions; and more.
