Child Poverty: Our Maine Issue

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Of the 48,000 Maine children living in poverty, almost half are considered to be living in “extreme poverty,” meaning that their families’ incomes are at or below 50% of the federal poverty level. This represents a 50% increase over the last five years – the sharpest increase of any state in the nation. This short documentary by Dan D’Ippolito examines this issue and we were glad to be a part of it.
