There are over 43 million Americans living below the poverty line. And almost a third of them are children. The hardest part for families living in poverty today is that it is extremely difficult to make it above the poverty line when you have to focus on the next day and that day only. They feel like they are forever stuck making sure they are providing the basics for their family and children. While they are grateful for the possible free meal and clothes, they desperately desire to be able to support themselves and their children, with security and comfort. Today we are talking with Brent Hutchinson, the coordinator for the Utah Valley area of Circles USA. Circles is a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding long-term solutions to end poverty for both individuals and families.
