Why End Poverty Durham?
Durham is a thriving city with a median income of $48,900, yet it has a 28% child poverty rate and an 18% adult poverty rate.
This disparity is unacceptable, shameful, and contrary to the teachings of our faith. We therefore seek to:
- mobilize the faith community to remove the scourge of poverty from our city,
- support existing anti-poverty efforts, and
- promote other initiatives that address the underlying causes of poverty.
