In Jacksonville, one out of every six children will grow up in poverty, with 12–14% of citizens earning less than a living wage. Many of these families have jobs and want to get out of poverty, but they lack access to the basic resources that could help them make the transition to a financially stable life.
The help we provide to families in Jacksonville is not a “handout.” Instead, through counseling, education, and access to comprehensive resources, we assist those living in poverty as they move toward financial stability. The goal of 1,000 in 1,000 is to help 1,000 people move out of poverty every 1,000 days. With your support, we can achieve this goal!
