The Salvation Army is looking Coast to Coast for people affected by poverty, but who hide it – people who you’d never expect to be living in poverty or hide their struggles (hidden poverty). Our goal is to showcase a range of stories from the elderly, to single parents, to families who experience hidden poverty in different ways.

– A cab driver that worked as a doctor before immigrating with his family to Canada.
– An senior, still working a minimum wage job to make ends meet.
– Multiple families living under one roof because they can’t make it on their own.
– A story about hidden poverty that takes place around the Christmas Season.
