Investing in solutions to move people
from poverty to possibility
The state of the economy, poor health and social isolation can have a devastating impact on communities where families struggle daily just to get by. Poverty, homelessness and hunger don’t define people. They are a current state of being brought about by extenuating circumstances, often beyond one’s control.
