ICP is on StoryCorp!

ICP assists and advocates for real people with real issues.

On ICP’s StoryCorps page, hear housing choice voucher holders talk about their experiences as they moved to low-poverty neighborhoods free of segregation where they thought their families could best thrive.  You will also be able to hear from Dallas residents who have participated in ICP’s Voices for Opportunity advocacy training and raised their neighborhood equity concerns about their communities.

This project was made possible with help from the Pearl C. Anderson Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas.
