Where We Stand:
Senior Poverty: Action Needed to Address a Growing Problem
Can you imagine living on less than $24 a day. Mary, a 74-year-old widow who lives alone in a small apartment on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio can. With just $721 a month ($8,652 a year), she needs to figure out how to pay her rent, prescription drug co-payments, grocery bills, utilities, car insurance and gas. There is rarely enough to pay for it all and no room for any extras or to cover emergencies.
