When many people think of Bucks County, they picture bucolic farm fields and parks, bustling cultural hubs, and established middle class neighborhoods. But behind that picture is a more complicated reality for those looking working to make ends meet.
The Bucks County Opportunity Council – a non-profit based in Doylestown and with locations across the county - works to reduce poverty and partner with our community to promote economic self-sufficiency.
In this episode, we’re joined by Erin Lukoss, executive director and chief executive officer at BCOC, and Jake Iampietro, Director of Retail Banking at Penn Community Bank and a BCOC board member, to learn more about this important organization. In our conversation, we discuss the group’s Economic Self-Sufficiency program, the impact of COVID-19 on the community, and the years-long partnership between Bucks County Opportunity Council and Penn Community Bank.
