25% under 18 struggle with poverty

According to a Statesman Journal article today, more than 25% of Oregonians under the age of 18 are living in poverty. Families of single mothers younger than 5 struggle the most. Public assistance keeps some of these off the streets, but as we saw in previous articles I've been posting from the Main Stream Media, not all. We have invited some of our clients to join us for dinner on October 22nd, come and hear their story.
