Decreasing poverty through leadership and city improvements is the goal of the Horizons II program.
The City of Philip was chosen as a participant in the Horizons II project. Residents have been working with the program since the middle of last year.
Last Thursday evening, February 15, a few local residents gathered for a meal and meeting about the next step in the program. Some of those in attendance were unsure of what the program is about.
The program started in 1998 after the Northwest Area Foun-dation, (NWAF), revamped its mission and awarding of grant dollars.
