Poverty in America


Across our land, more Americans are living in poverty than at any time since the 1950s. Even more sobering, 1 in 5 children in the U.S. live in poverty with millions of children being added to the poverty population in recent years. Poverty in America is closer to you than it may appear. 1 in 6 U.S. households runs out of money and food in any given month. This may be impacting a child right in your neighborhood.

Every month your gift will go to help children right here at home- allowing World Vision to answer urgent needs that might otherwise go unmet. You'll be helping vulnerable children and families lift themselves out of poverty by providing access to critical basics like:

  • Essential items such as clothing, personal hygiene supplies, household cleaning products, and building materials
  • Much-needed school supplies and educational opportunities for young people
  • Relief, recovering, and rebuilding supplies when disaster strikes

Together we can help American children and rebuild hope here at home.

When you give monthly or yearly:

You’ll experience the joy of seeing the impact of your ongoing support through updates and stories. And as a special thank you, we’ll send you our award-winning World Vision Magazine! This beautiful, inspiring magazine will show you the ongoing impact of your charity investment through stories from the field, photos, and prayer points.

The gift card option is currently not available for the item above.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.

The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
