Helping Hands with Rebecca Duncan

Rebecca Duncan Helping Hands Cookeville TN Podcast Kosta Yepifantsev

Join Kosta and his guest: Rebecca Duncan, Director at Helping Hands of Putnam County.

In this episode: One of the biggest misconceptions about poverty in our area is that welfare primarily goes to people who are not working. When in reality, the problem isn’t that people aren’t working, it’s that our employers aren’t paying enough. Will you tell us about how this cycle is impacting Putnam County in 2024? Today, what do you think is the greatest challenge we face for the working class of our community? Is it workforce, housing, food insecurity, healthcare, childcare or all of the above? How does Helping Hands fill the gaps where our other social services can’t?
