A recent study demonstrated that one out of every five millennials today is living in poverty*. In comparison, one of every seven baby boomers was living in poverty in 1980.
The face of poverty is changing. Nearly 40% of our utility and rental assistance clients have at least post-secondary education. That's why, in addition to providing financial help, TCAA is piloting a program with Maricopa Workforce. They will begin meeting with our clients who have associates and bachelors degrees to help them find jobs - and allow us to reach additional residents living in poverty.
With your help, TCAA will continue to take action in new and innovative ways to meet changing community needs and challenges.
