Columbus/Franklin County Seniors and Children in Poverty

These are based on US Census data from the American Community Survey for Lucas County home to the City of Toledo.   This demonstrates that the social security system, Medicare, and the local senior safety net works.  Every community has a government funds going to help seniors with transportation, day centers, and activities.  Government has been effective keeping seniors in housing and safe.  We have not done the same for families in the United States and we are seeing overflowing shelters and long waiting lists for housing for families.
