Citizen Mouth Off 2016: Poverty, Philadelphia's Greatest Crisis

For a family of four, they are subsiding on $24,250 a year. What’s worse? Imagine "deep poverty," a term describing living on half that amount. Among the nation's 10 largest cities, Philadelphia ranks highest for deep poverty. This is our city’s greatest crisis.
