Defining Poverty

"I don't think you can put a strict money figure on it. Sometimes it's people who are homeless, about to lose their jobs or about to lose their homes. If you made $60,000 a year but just lost your job and could lost your house, you're facing poverty."

-- Brendan Clancy, Portage Township trustee, whose office provides poor relief to some of Porter Counties most impoverished municipalities
