The "Faces of Poverty" documentary will speak with many individuals and organizations dealing with poverty in our community.  It is our hope that this project will illuminate the plight of our families, friends, and neighbors and value the hard work that people living under challenging circumstances face everyday. 



Organizations like OFO, Catholic Charities, Social Service Groups, Community Leaders, Hospitals, Church Social Action Committees, Schools, Hunger Coalition Members, Law Enforcement, Clergy and Volunteers dedicated to helping those in need are part of the solution to poverty in our area.
