    This is a cycle of child poverty that we have seen worsen throughout my lifetime. Enough is enough, children deserve lives of love and dignity!

    What our government is doing is a travesty to working poor families/ disabled families/ etc. I keep calling our congress people and don’t seem to get anywhere. They don’t understand the day to day struggles that a lot of people and families endure.

    I believe in helping lift people out of poverty, but I believe social programs need accountability. If we follow a process similar to that initiated in Great Britain that accountability is part of the process.

    Unless children are given food, clothing, shelter and emotional support in their early years, they have no chance to become contributing members of a healthy society later in life.

    We have the highest child poverty rate in the country. Our legislators need to be called out and we need to advocate for programs and services to turn this around. Wages, healthcare, education, access…
