Currently, one in four Springfield residents lives in poverty. The city has one of the highest child poverty rates in the country: 44 percent. One in four adult residents has dropped out of school and lack high school diplomas. This year, we struggle to help people amidst a deep recession that s left Springfield with a 13% unemployment rate and triggered foreclosures for one in every 200 city homeowners.
