Nearly 1 in 2 children in Cincinnati live in poverty
In the United States, 1 in 5 children are poor, but in Cincinnati that rate is more than double. In 2014, 44% of all children in the city came from families at or below the poverty line. Economic injustice is among the most devastating forms of oppression, as childhood poverty has lifetime consequences ranging from lower educational attainment, to higher rates of incarceration, to lower life expectancy.
The Children's Justice Project fights economic injustice by providing direct assistance to children in poverty.
