Providing for Our Neediest

We believe:

  • That our communities—local, state and national—are weakened when our citizens are in poverty or one job loss or medical emergency away from economic insecurity
  • That providing a safety net for citizens is not only in the moral compact of our nation’s founding but also a strategic investment in our long-term economic prosperity
  • That our current system of intervening only in the hardest cases is fiscally wrong-headed/more expensive than alternatives
  • We have a responsibility as a community to lift all people above the poverty line, including the sick, the disabled, the homeless, the hungry, the elderly, and the unemployed, and as a part of resetting our local, state and national priorities, to make available affordable housing and a living wage for all.
