AMERICANPOVERTY.ORG IS A NON-PROFIT ALLIANCE OF PHOTOJOURNALISTS COMMITTED TO SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE IN THE UNITED STATES.
We too often forget that real faces, real children, make up the endless streams of abstract facts about poverty in America. Children are not the cause of their own poverty, but they often suffer the worst of poverty's consequences.

CBS Evening News correspondent Jim Axelrod recently traveled to Athens County, OH to interview AmercanPoverty.org director Steve Liss.
In the first of a series of profiles of Americans struggling with economic hardship, we visit Shirley Forerider of Coolville, Ohio, one of the poorest towns in one of the poorest counties in the state.
