There are solutions to DuPage poverty

More than 70 percent of the individuals served by People's Resource Center last year have been coming to PRC for more than a year, compared to five years ago when most of our clients were newcomers. These struggling families face significant challenges each day and are working hard to overcome the many barriers they encounter as they work toward self-sufficiency.

There's no quick-fix to poverty in DuPage, but there are real solutions. People's Resource Center is an example of a community's response to a community problem. PRC's core of volunteers, programs and services are available to help our struggling neighbors overcome challenges and get back on their feet. It doesn't happen overnight, but it does happen.

People's Resource Center has been helping those in need since 1975. Visit us at our Wheaton or Westmont locations and see how we're fighting poverty in DuPage neighbor to neighbor.
