More than 13 million children in America live in poverty*, sleeping in housing projects and rundown hotels, daily suffering from poor living conditions. Families are barely able to pay the rent, often hungry and uncertain where their next meal will come from. No child should have to endure pain like this. Children suffer the cruel effects of poverty more than anyone else as their social and physical development can be damaged in these crucial first years of life.
