THE PROBLEM

46,500,000

Americans living in poverty*

10,400,000

families living in poverty supported by full-time workers *

1,800,000

social service practitioners nationwide working every day to fight the effects of poverty**

According to Census Bureau data, only 3.5% of those living under the poverty level remained there for more than three years – meaning that more than 96% of those people worked hard to achieve economic mobility – yet more than 30% of this figure would return below the poverty line.

Despite tens of thousands of social service organizations fighting to alleviate poverty, financial insecurity is still on the rise.
