Fighting Against Childhood Hunger (Cincinnati region focus)

Time for a Bolder Child Poverty Collaborative – Byron P. White

StrivePartnership Exec. Director, Byron P. White


Child Poverty Collaborative (CPC) – Steering Committee

According to this Child Poverty Collaborative webpage, What They Do is:

We lead, partner, and support system changes to reduce poverty and improve children’s lives. In collaboration with families and community partners, the CPC seeks to ensure that people currently living in poverty move toward achieving and maintaining self-sufficiency.

Sounds like a good approach!

Xavier’s Computer Science faculty and students are working on projects with the Poverty Collaborative, including preparing by doing a Poverty Simulation!

    • Zip for Winton Terrace is 45232 according to Google Maps
