Des Moines ministerial leaders organized an assembly of more than 500 to leverage support for $1.4 Million in investments for workforce development. The pilot program will be modeled after Project Quest (and sister SWIAF workforce development projects) and follows a trip to San Antonio with the director of Iowa workforce development and the President of the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation. Both gubernatorial candidates committed to working with AMOS to secure state monies and identify other funding sources.
