    Our children deserve to have enough to eat, a safe home, healthcare and a good education at minimum. Shame on us if we continue to look away from our own children in our state.

    After working at Head Start a number of years, poverty was in front of me. Head start provided a number of services and programs but it isn’t enough and as a staff I saw this. I believe that poverty isn’t just children. Poverty can be any age and when bringing up their children, parents can’t give their children the type of support that other parents who have money can give. It then can lead to less education and quality of time which can turn into crimes which can turn into incarceration.

    Children are our investment for our future. When we promote their optimum experiences in childhood, we promote a better future for us all.

    No child should suffer because of poverty. This is a trauma that will affect their learning and therefore their futures.

    If we don’t address childhood poverty, we will continue to experience generations of poverty that does lasting harm to them and to society.
