My greatest concern for Waco is the wide income separation. The majority of the population is living below 200% of the poverty level. While we have many programs in place to assist individuals I think we can be more effective in raising individuals out of poverty if we collaborate more on our efforts. I also believe we must do more than address physical needs. I believe that in order for individuals to prosper (financially, educationally, and emotionally) they need someone to walk with them, to mentor and support them.
