Out of Poverty

Today more than 1 in 10 Americans have limited access to adequate food.* Here in Lancaster County 50% of individuals and families are paying gross rent that’s greater than 30% of their household income.**

By the year 2025, we have challenged our community to decrease the number of families and individuals living in poverty by half. This goal is BOLD—but not impossible. We can create lasting ways that change people’s lives through improved education, better jobs, and good health.

Help make this great change happen.
