The Problem

Presently, 1 in 6 individuals in the United States live in poverty. Nearly a third are children under the age of 14. The absolute number of individuals currently who live in poverty is the highest in our country’s history!

The goal of Taking it to the Streets is to “break the cycle of poverty” for those residents most in need.

Taking it to the Streets creates a new and innovative fundraising pathway for broadening the base of support for basic human needs – food, shelter, medical needs – in our local communities.

Our goals are to invest in long term solutions, not offer short term band aids.
