Healthcare is a basic human right.
Yet those who need it the most – people living in poverty – are least likely to have access to quality care.
The average life expectancy in our neighborhood is 13 years less than that of Buckhead
Families living in poverty have a higher risk of Chronic Disease, such as Diabetes, which they are twice as likely to develop
Mental Health issues are five times more prevalent in individuals living in poverty
