Each year, during our Toyland for Kids distribution, the Center for People in Need surveys families and presented its findings in are report titled:The Face of Poverty Today in Lincoln, Nebraska. The surveys include the areas such as education, employment, transportation, food and utilities, child care, and health.
What makes the report unique is that it continues to serve as the voice of low-income people in Lincoln and Lancaster County. The report shows what daily life in Lincoln is like without the material resources most of us take for granted. Low-income families and individuals face a constant daily struggle: to put food on the table, to have a place to call home, to see a doctor or dentist, to get an education and to get and keep a job.
