News & Notes

DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa (WHP) — Real stories from real people here in Central PA-living in poverty. CBS 21 News is taking a closer look at what some of our neighbors are dealing with.

January is National Poverty Awareness Month and CBS 21's Hallie Jacobs talked with families who know what it's like to work several jobs, while raising kids and ultimately just trying to stay afloat.

The reality is, more than 12% of people in Pennsylvania live in poverty. That's according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In Dauphin County, more than 32,000 people are living in poverty and in York County, the number jumps to over 38,000.

Ombudsman services are provided by MidPenn Legal Services under a contract with the Schuylkill County Office of Senior Services. The program is
monitored by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.
