Lift Yourself Off the Street: Newark NJ Organization UCC Helps In The Fight Against Poverty
In NJ, plenty of individuals do have the odds stacked against them - 6% of the population is below the extreme poverty line. To make matters worse, around 14% of available jobs are low-wage professions that make it extremely hard to rise above the vicious cycle of poverty. Mainor argues that these individuals and their families might need a little helping hand to get them back on track; creating avenues for self-sufficiency such as helping folks out with housing and food, and especially with the correct mindset, is what is needed to help bring people out of poverty and dependency.
Listen to the whole interview to find out how you can help people in Newark help themselves to lift themselves out of poverty and dependency. You can also help donate to the United Community Corporation’s cause to end poverty in Newark, NJ. The fight against poverty is not so easily won, but it needs all the help it can get.
