New Anti-Poverty Group Forms in Syracuse
A variety of groups already working to end poverty in Syracuse have created a coalition that organizers say seeks to change policies that keep people poor.
Greater Syracuse HOPE - Healing, Opportunity, Prosperity and Empowerment - wants to be the local anti-poverty initiative for Syracuse and Onondaga County. And organizers hope that the group will be in the running for a $500,000 state grant that was proposed in Gov. Andrew Cuomo's budget to develop strategies to help poor people.
