There are more than 180,000 children in southeastern Pennsylvania who live in families with incomes at or below the federal poverty level- $23,550 a year for a family of four.  The parents of most of these children work, but low wages and an unstable job market makes it difficult for families to make ends meet.  PCCY works to help lift families out of poverty by pushing for increased investment and access to services for families such as the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit.  These valuable resources help tens of thousands of children in southeastern Pennsylvania rise out of poverty every year.
