Making ends meet isn't always the easiest thing to do these days and if you, or someone you know, lives in Newburgh and is struggling, the Newburgh Anti-Poverty Task Force and United Way want to hear your ideas about how to improve Newburgh and help build a great future for all the residents.

To that end a community listening session will be held on Saturday, January 21 from 11 to 5 at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center on 321 William Street in Newburgh. The theme of this meeting is Speak to Change and they want your thoughts on what you think about housing, jobs, medical, education, transportation, and any other issues you are concerned about in Newburgh.
