Frequently asked questions
- What does poverty look like in the U.S?
The economic impacts of the pandemic have left many families in difficult financial situations. In fact, nearly half of low-income families in the U.S report they or someone in their household have experienced income loss, and many who once supported The Salvation Army through regular donations have now come to The Salvation Army for help.
