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.
Web-based resources are available to help us learn more about PovertyUSA.org
(PobrezaUSA.org for Spanish version)
