Welcome

Welcome to the Northumberland Poverty Reduction Action Committee’s site

NPRAC’s goal is to reduce poverty in this county. To do so, we are creating an action strategy, and acting as a coordinated inclusive voice for change. We hope to inspire the community to take action along with us to measurably improve the lives of Northumberland residents. We want to get “poverty reduction” as a top item on everyone’s mind.

Our site is here for you, whether you need help finding resources to address poverty, or whether you want to help us in taking action to reduce poverty locally.

  • Close to 1 in 8 people in Northumberland live in poverty.
  • Twenty percent of those living in poverty are children below the age of six!
