Sanctuary: Poverty in the Suburbs

Set your DVR’s for Sunday, December 28, 11:30 a.m., ABC7 Chicago for Sanctuary: Poverty in the Suburbs. We’re in Wheaton, Illinois, the center of DuPage County. With a per capita income over $37,000 a year, DuPage County is Illinois second wealthiest. Yet those figures mask a growing population living at or below the poverty line.

In this edition of Sanctuary we look the People’s Resource Center, one of the largest food pantry programs in the suburbs, providing low-income residents with basic human services and relationship-based educational programs to create paths to self-sufficiency.

Join us for a story of faith, courage, and service that will challenge what you think about your politics, and your faith, today on Sanctuary. Sanctuary is produced by the Greater Chicago Broadcast Ministries and Tim Frakes Productions.
