January is Poverty Awareness Month


More than 46 million Americans live in Poverty USA.
With continuing unemployment and increasing costs of living, more and more families have to choose between necessities like health care, child care, and even food.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has designated January as Poverty Awareness Month.
