State of Indiana Archives: on Welfare & Poverty

Mike Pence: Faith-based community gives us hope for new opportunities

While other states are struggling just to make ends meet, Indiana has made important investments in education and infrastructure and still ended the year with a surplus. But we still face many challenges as a state. We welcomed the recent news that the unemployment rate statewide dropped, but despite our positive trajectory, the people of Indiana feel strongly that our economy's growth is not matching the hopes, aspirations and dreams of our people. That's where some of today's honorees come in.

Where would we be without our faith-based community and the leaders who give us hope and inspire us even as we roll up our sleeves and do the work we need to build businesses and provide new opportunities and help the hurting in our communities?
