January is Poverty Awareness in America Month

Today, 37.3 million Americans—and 1 in 6 children (that’s 18 percent of all American children)-are living below the poverty line.  They live in families who are of necessity making hard choices between food, health care, heat and rent. To bring attention to this national crisis, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has designated January as “Poverty in America Awareness Month.”

Come by the Library Lobby and look over our display books and DVD’s that discuss and explore the social and legal issues surrounding the plight of the poor in America.
