The Need in Our Community
We serve families with an average annual income of $18,000, who live at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. Our typical client is a single parent who works two jobs, supports two children and earns an average of $18,000/year. These are families who are struggling to make ends meet, often working several jobs at minimum wage. With a majority of a family’s income going to housing, there is little financial cushion for a crisis. A medical emergency or car trouble can quickly turn a self-sufficient family into one in need.
Our Daily Bread provides a safety net for needs often unmet by other organizations. Especially with the challenging economy and current unemployment rates, the demand for assistance outpaces our funding ability to help: we receive an average of five calls for assistance per day that have to be turned away.
