  • Poverty in Eastern Kentucky

    When you think of extreme poverty, you may tend to think of people overseas, or in far away places. The reality is, there are many struggling right here in our own back yard. Tucked in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky are communities of people who are struggling every day for enough to meet their basic needs. In order to help and love these people, someone would have to live along side of them, teaching and helping them on a daily basis. The Happy Church is a community doing just that. Check out how the Happy Church is showing Christ love through ordinary acts of love. Godfire Apparel is proud to be partnering with and giving proceeds from our apparel to help fuel the Happy Church as they live out this incredible story.

    Rosanna Troyer is coping with the drop in her federal food assistance from $367 to $303 by cutting back on meat purchases and buying more canned goods and macaroni and cheese. Her 12-year-old daughter is already sick of the hot dogs they've been eating frequently at their home in Owsley County, which has the lowest median household income of any U.S. county outside Puerto Rico. Troyer is one of the more than 47 million Americans who receive food stamps, all of whom saw their allotment drop on Nov. 1 as a temporary benefit from the 2009 economic stimulus ran out. Few places feel the difference as profoundly as Owsley County, an overwhelmingly white and Republican area whose own representative in Congress voted against renewing the benefit. The drop came ahead of the 50th anniversary of P...

    This is part one in a series of reports by CNN on Beattyville Kentucky. It is one of the most poverty-stricken areas of the United States. The fall out of the coal mines and other industry's has left this poor rural County with many problems and a hopeless future unless Donald Trump keeps his promise to these poverished people. CNN will be going back to Kentucky to follow up on this story in one year to track the progress. Let's just hope Donald Trump really does bring back jobs to these people who are so deserving.

Few places feel the difference as profoundly as Owsley County, an overwhelmingly white and Republican area whose own representative in Congress voted against renewing the benefit. The drop came ahead of the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson's call for a "War on Poverty," an initiative aimed at expanding the government's role in education and health care as poverty reduction strategies. The food stamp program grew out the initiative Johnson launched with his Jan 8, 1964 speech. The programs played a role in bringing Owsley County and other parts of Appalachia out of what has been described as "third-world conditions" where people died of starvation, said Jason Bailey, director of the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy in Frankfort. Across Kentucky, nearly 900,000 people who need food stamps saw a proposed cut of $40 billion from the food stamp program, also known Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. And, with the cut in benefits, it appears the gap will widen, particularly in a place like Owsley County in a rural, poor area in Kentucky's Appalachian foothills, said Jason Dunn, director of the Division of Family Support for the Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services. Owlsey County, home to 4,722 residents, is poor even by Appalachian standards. Its median household income of $19,351 is the lowest outside of Puerto Rico, according to census results. The county is more than 99 percent white. In 2009, the last year available, government benefits accounted for 53.07% of personal income. Over 41 percent of residents _ four in 10 _ fall below the poverty line. In 2011, the most recent year available, 52 percent received food stamps.
