What is
Poverty?

When you think of "poverty" do you picture a single mom trying to pay the bills, feed the kids, and get ahead on a minimum wage job? Or do you picture a suburban couple where the main breadwinner has lost his/her job and has now run out of savings to pay for his/her spouse’s medical treatment?

The face of poverty sometimes isn't as noticeable as we may think. Consider the following:

  • While poverty in Monroe County is concentrated in the City of Rochester, 45% of the county’s poor residents live in the suburbs.
  • For every unemployed person living in poverty, there are TWO working people living in poverty.
