Thanks to our friends at the North Carolina Housing Coalition, this link to a quiz on poverty compiled by the group “Half In 10” that signifies cutting poverty in half in ten years.

Take the quiz and learn something at the same time. I did and got 11 out of 15 correct, which is better than 10 in 15, that’s about all I can say about that. The statistics are stunning and shows in numbers the difficulty a family has in achieving decent, affordable housing while working in low wage employment.
