Economic Development = Community Development in Fairmount/Sugar Creek

Three years ago, CSL undertook a different approach to assessing needs in a community . We went directly to the people we served, and we asked them what they wanted, and how we could work together to achieve their goals. That simple act has changed so much about our work. In CSL's traditional service catchment area of Eastern Jackson County, the Northwest Independence/Sugar Creek area has the highest rates of poverty indicators. Consider these statistics from the 64053 zip code (all courtesy of United States census data): - Seven out of 10 adults have a high school diploma or equivalent - The median household income is less than $30,000 - 37% of families live below the Federal Poverty Level
