NEST Community Learning Center is working to make a difference in our community for kids to have a fighting chance.
Nearly half of all children in the city of Cincinnati -- 44.6 percent -- live below the federal poverty level. That amounts to 28,811 kids.
In Hamilton County, more than one out of four children, or 26.1 percent, live in poverty. That represents 48,029 children.
And for the Tri-State as a whole, 19.4 percent, or nearly one in five children, live in households that are below the federal poverty level. That figure represents 98,824 kids.
