Poverty Center Opens in Butte

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

A new neighborhood center opens up to help out people living in poverty. The new Emma Park Neighborhood Center is located uptown within one of Butte's high poverty areas.

It will serve as the headquarters for the Human Resources Council, a non-profit organization that's been around for decades.

"Our new facility is really kind of a beacon of hope for this high poverty area of Butte-Silver Bow County and our purpose is really to bring our services that we've been providing for fifty years to the neighborhood level," said Margie Seccomb, CEO of the Human Resources Council.

The new facility is also launching programs to address blight and social conditions that affect low income and poverty stricken families.
