Record #:
It is estimated that between 700,000 and one million state citizens live below the poverty line. Economic recession and repeal of policy that aids the impoverished has increased hardship on individuals and those organizations who attempt to help (NC Justice Center, AARP, the Institute for Civic Engagement and Social Change at N.C. Central, etc.). Examples of those living in dire conditions include Afghanistan and Iraqi veterans living under a bridge in Fayetteville.
