Understanding Poverty

What is poverty?

At Community Action, we strive to empower individuals and enhance family resilience by guiding them towards a journey out of poverty. Our local initiatives are in harmony with a nationwide network of agencies committed to a common objective. The national promise of the Community Action Partnership is to change people's lives, embody the spirit of hope, improve communities, and make America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

What are the conditions of poverty?

Individuals residing in financially disadvantaged circumstances struggle to satisfy their fundamental requirements such as food, housing, heating, utilities, clothing, transportation, healthcare, and childcare. This economic vulnerability can lead to challenging choices regarding which fundamental requirements to address, as these families strive to navigate the financial constraints associated with living at or near the poverty line.
