Poverty In America: Myths About Welfare Recipients
CBS Local
(CBS Charlotte) — Throughout history, the United States government has implemented measures to assist people living in poverty.
Homestretch Inc's insight:

"Poverty is about power not scarcity". Just because America doesn't have poverty like Africa doesn't mean that it should be ignored or deemed less important. With income inequality at it's highest rates, those who are at or near minimum wage will spiral down the poverty trap.

Homestretch Inc's insight:

Our clients suffer everyday, making difficult choices just to barely make ends meet. More of the community needs to be aware of what is happening because every little piece of help matters.

It is great what they are working on, giving back to the community, helping those who deserves a helping hand. They came up with a proper plan with a clear outcome - to eliminate homelessness in the area. They are trying their best to help out those who are in need. By partnering with other non-profit assosiations, companies, bussinesses, communities and government, they are creating better lives for these people and doing amazing things to help them out. People who want to do great should take Fairfax-Falls Community as an example, striving to create equality amongst us.

 

NO ONE DESERVES TO SUFFER FROM POVERTY!

Poverty in the suburbs: Hidden and growing
CBS News
The suburbs are home to the fastest growing group of people living in poverty.
Homestretch Inc's insight:

Poverty has become a blanket term for poor, run down, probably homeless family. This article demonstrates evidence against that. With lower paying jobs coming to a place with rising cost of living, then of course eventually people will no longer be able to keep up. That is a much different outlook that what has become the normin society. It is important to realize that poverty happens everywhere, for all types of reasons not because someone was lazy, didn't work or have a high school degree.

Another article about people doing good deeds for the community. I saw people, queuing up for food. I read the caption, I could say nothing but "wow". Those people, were receiving food for free. Receiving turkey and the fixings for their Thanksgiving meals. I ended up with a smile.

 

It is so happy to see that out there, there are still people paying back to the society, helping out those less fortunate. This spirit seems to further emphasise the sympathy of human with one another. For those who are Christians, Thanksgiving, is such an important day. Those poor cannot afford a meal, we give them the meal. That is how nice the people in the Food Bank of Alameda are.

 

If one can do this, the other can absolutely do the same. WIth this keeps going on and on, care for others, together we will clear poverty around the Earth
