Did you know?
- Nearly 86,000 (to be specific, 85,998) children are in impoverished conditions, according to the US Census Bureau.
- Census data shows one-in-five children in PBC lives in poverty
- Multiple factors including impoverished living conditions lead to outcomes that promote or idealize poor behaviors.
- Children living in poverty experience the daily impacts that come easily to mind — hunger, illness, insecurity, instability — but they also are more likely to experience low academic achievement, obesity, behavioral problems and social and emotional development difficulties (Malhomes, 2012).
- Such early disparities can have a profound influence on children's long-term development, leading to higher rates of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, drug use, mental health disorders and dementia as adults.
HATT’s goal is to give at-risk children living in these circumstances hope, life, and eternity.
