How can you fight something if you don't understand its root causes? There are many misconceptions about poverty — poor people don't want a hand up, they want a hand out, poor people are lazy, if you're poor in the U.S., you're still doing pretty well, etc., etc.
Reducing the impact of poverty in our community is the central focus of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County. Everything we do, every issue we're involved in, every initiative we champion — all of it revolves around poverty and how it affects the people and places we love.
A light breakfast will be served.
