It's a tough climb
out of poverty

46 Million People Live in Poverty

In the United States, nearly 1 in 7 people live in poverty. The federal government defines poverty as a family of four living on $23,500 or less. Many of these families work hard to make ends meet, often employed at unpredictable minimum wage jobs. Even working full-time at minimum wage, individuals earn less than $15,000 a year.
