In addition to educating about poverty, we also advocate by sharing the voices of real people experiencing poverty. Community members across Oregon volunteer to share their stories and perspectives about poverty, and we use their stories to inform and educate groups and organizations how poverty is authentically experienced in our state.
Our volunteers have a variety of experiences with poverty, underlining the importance of the individual context of poverty. No two experiences are the same. Learn more from our volunteers on their personal experiences with poverty, and hear from our volunteers on what they want you to know about their experience.
