As a draft proposal for the non-profit Southern Regional Community Services Council, this document outlines the purpose and intended methodologies of the organization. The Council's mission is to train local leaders to help the unemployed and poor find jobs. Local leaders would include representation from churches, colleges, farm groups, professionals, and small businesses. Other goals are to increase living standards and cycle income back into businesses that focus on community savings and development. Providing efficient aid to the poor, the Council would also "fill a gap in agency representation- being of service to and a "voice" for- the poor, especially in rural areas of the South." The proposal includes a model for the Council, as well as, possible private and government funding.
