Did you know that "on average, one out of every three Americans - 34.2 percent of all people in the United States - are officially classified as living in poverty at least 2 months out of the year? (U.S. Census Bureau, Dynamics of Economic Well-Being: Poverty 1996-1999, July 2003.)"

January is National Poverty Awareness Month. These pages will educate you on the poverty in our country as well as on what you can do to help!
