The goal of the Mayor’s Commission to Combat Poverty Report, titled One Good Job, is to cut poverty in half in Lancaster City in 15 years. Poverty is a complex issue and in order to advance solutions for people living in poverty, the recommendations related to Workforce, Education, Housing and Community are aimed at eliminating- not managing- poverty for our estimated 16,000 residents currently experiencing poverty. LCA Vice President Shelby Nauman served on the Commission’s work-group and the Lancaster City Alliance tracks per capita income and housing units as part of the 15-year Building On Strength Plan.
Lancaster City Flourishes and everyone shares in its success.
Lancaster City Alliance is a non-profit that cultivates partnerships with business, local communities, the arts, education, non-profits, and government to ensure Lancaster is a clean, safe, and vibrant City for all.
