CHURCH IN THE CITY: CHILD POVERTY
Chapel/Chapel Annex – Sunday, February 3rd 9:45 – 10:45 am
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, North Carolina is ranked the 11th highest state in the nation for child poverty, with nearly half of North Carolina children living in poor or low-income homes. Children who live in poverty, particularly during early childhood, are at risk of poor health and struggles throughout their lives, which can prohibit them from living into their God-given potential. So what can we do? Join us for our next Church in the City as we hear from experts from NC Child, the Department of Health and Human Services and Conn Elementary (our partner school). We’ll discuss what childhood poverty looks like in NC and Raleigh, actions our city and state are taking to address the issue, and ways we can come alongside children and families struggling with poverty. Hope to see you there!
