Research shows that an average family of four needs about twice the poverty-level income to meet basic needs, so the problem is actually greater than this.

More Americans live in poverty than at any time since the 1950s. Job losses and health problems can be devastating for families living on the edge.

Years of research show that children and youth in poverty are more likely to underachieve in school and experience health and behavioral problems.
