ISSUE: United Way of Central Kentucky
OUR VIEW: Focused approach will have an impact
The regional challenge is sobering. Consider the statistics. Across the five-county area served by United Way of Central Kentucky, one in six individuals lives in poverty. For children, the ratio is even more problematic with one in four at or below the poverty level.
According to United Way, that ratio equates to some 13,000 children who struggle with getting their basic needs met.
