City Limits; A Poverty Project

A recent study revealed that Syracuse was the 13th poorest city in the United States. Last year alone over 41 Thousand Syracuse residents lived in poverty, including 47 percent of children under the age of 18. In response to those figures WAER presents City Limits, a year long reporting initiative to explore the poverty crisis in Syracuse. We'll be sharing the stories of those struggling in poverty, those who have risen out of poverty and profiles of  the organizations helping to battle poverty.
