Numbers tell an alarming story of how many local families are still struggling months after the nation’s recession was declared over. How is the community responding to these needs? What is the City’s role in poverty alleviation? Who is the Department of Social Sustainability? What non-profit partners directly serve those in homelessness or on the brink of homelessness? Are there ways every day folks can be part of the solution?

Learn about the often hidden poverty and homelessness that is a way of life for many of our neighbors and what programs are leading folks to a place of stability.
