Eliminating poverty remains one of the most potent and persistent challenges we face in our community. The statistics are daunting, and the impact on human lives – people who are our neighbours, friends and family – is all too real.

So many of our children, families and neighbours are vulnerable to desperate circumstances, which can be caused in an instant by an unexpected layoff or a family breakup, an accident or sudden illness – or by ongoing cycles that span generations.

Living in poverty means there is not enough money for the basics of a healthy life. Poverty imposes hard economic choices — between shelter and medicine, food and transportation, childcare and employment opportunities, moving towards a self-sufficient future versus just getting through today.

Collectively, we need to change these circumstances. When poverty is everybody's business, we make real progress.
