Invest in Tomorrow: Solving Child Poverty is Everyone’s Business
Individuals and organizations in Maine have joined forces to solve child poverty because we recognize that we all have a stake in this. We recognize that solving child poverty is truly everyone’s business.Organizations representing business, our workforce, our communities and Maine people living in poverty have come together to identify some common sense solutions to child poverty that we can all support.
As part of this effort stakeholders are convening community solutions forums across the State to hear from local communities about what the solutions should look like. Many thanks to the John T.
