DO YOU KNOW YOUR CITY?
Poverty hurts people. It destroys communities. It steals our joy and robs our future. At CitySquare, we continue to see poverty attacking our city and fight against our vision of equal opportunity and shared prosperity.
In dramatic contrast to the surrounding region's economic prosperity, the City of Dallas has one of the highest concentrations of poverty in the nation with over 152,822 families in Dallas that are living at or below the poverty level. Dallas has the highest number of people living 185 percent below the poverty line of any American city and the second highest number of people living 100 percent below the poverty line.
