SUMMARY OF THE SHOW
On today's show, we look back at an earlier episode where we talk with Marci Fair, the Founder of Kares 4 Kids, a nonprofit that provides for children in need.
Close to 13 million children residing in the United States live in families with incomes below the federal poverty line, a threshold shown to underestimate the financial needs of American households. Research shows that, on average, families need an income of about twice that level to cover basic expenses. In 2018, the Census Bureau poverty threshold for a family of three with one child under 18 years old was just $20,212.
We don't yet have statistics from this past year with the effects of the pandemic.
