City Council Backs Poverty Initiative

No comments

The Fayetteville City Council endorsed a comprehensive action plan Monday night for an initiative that seeks to pull Fayetteville’s poorest residents out of generational poverty.

The initiative, called Pathways for Prosperity, will focus on 11 of the poorest communities in Fayetteville and Cumberland County. Its goal is to improve opportunities and resources in five focus areas — preschool, public education, affordable housing, life skills and workforce alignment.

No comments

Take a moment and imagine: Imagine a child from a single mother who has spent her last years working three jobs, a child who is a latchkey kid and rides the bus home to an empty house each day, prepares dinner for his siblings and often tucks them in at night because mama is still working. Imagine a child who leaves his siblings in the bed and walks down to the local corner store late at night because the family is out of milk or bread and he has to make sure they have the milk for breakfast tomorrow.
