Poverty is an economic and moral issue that threatens social justice and quality of life in Lancaster City and across our nation. Our community has decided to take a stand against this epidemic that is impacting our vulnerable neighbors. The Mayor's Commission to Combat Poverty will engage the community to increase the understanding of local poverty and undergo a problem solving process to make Lancaster City a better place for all.
Join the Mayor's Commission to Combat Poverty at the first public hearing, February 18, 2016 at Reynolds Middle School from 6 to 9 pm to discuss Core Services. The focus of the hearing will be around the following:
- Is healthy food, quality housing, adequate health care, transportation and child care accessible and affordable for working families and single-parent households?
- To what extent does unmet need for these basic essentials contribute to growing Poverty?
