    Above the Poverty Line

    Above the Poverty Line invests in our most marginalized neighbors. Statistically poverty is the most damaging affects of the African American and Latino working class communities besides food insecurity in District 37. This factor can lead to higher mortality, chronic disease and dismantling families. Our basic income program promotes financial stability and encouraging positive changes to sustaining a debt free household while learning skills to increase income, improving credit, food budgeting & saving.
