Our Impact on Poverty in America

Cold weather can strike at any time, causing the pain of sky rocketing utility bills.

For many families struggling to get by, the higher utility bills — and limited financial resources — it forces them to make tough decisions, choosing between heating their homes and providing for needs such as warm clothing.. Working with our community partners and donors, World Vision works to ease that burden by providing warm clothing and blankets where they are needed most. Learn more about how we help keep families warm.
