About this series

In York County, (Penn.) about one in 10 people doesn’t have or make enough money to meet basic living needs without help. Even a steady job isn’t always the answer, and a single setback can derail the most promising progress. “Path from Poverty” explores people working to escape poverty in different ways – by seeking help, by leaning on each other, by changing their own lives.

Part 1: Sarah Yanda was brought up middle-class but has discovered the suction of poverty. She vows to become self-sufficient.

Part 2: Nereida Simon overused her credit card in part because of family illnesses. She didn’t know how much she could change until she joined a group and found strength.

Part 3: Greg Smith’s job skills program found a partner in Jared Smith’s construction company, and together they put people to work on a York City schools project.
