Thursday, April 26, 2018 – The Changing Landscape of Poverty in Columbus
Presented by United Way of Central Ohio
  • Central Ohio has recovered from the Great Recession, and unemployment is the lowest it’s been in years. Yet, despite the growth and prosperity that many parts of the region are experiencing, the number of people in poverty remains stubbornly high. As a result, our community’s future growth is clearly at risk. In order to tackle Columbus’ poverty rate,  United Way of Central Ohio is committed to convening and mobilizing community leaders, government agencies, businesses, volunteers and donors to change underlying conditions and help families succeed. The end result for central Ohio? A community that has more opportunities available for everyone. A community that’s energized, vibrant and stronger than ever before.
  • Join leaders from United Way of Central Ohio for discussions on fighting poverty in our city and how you can get involved to create opportunity and a better future for all of central Ohio.
