Poverty in Appalachia: The Broken Homes
By "broken homes" I do not mean divorce and infidelity (though the residents of Appalachia informed me that both are very prevalent in the region). The homes that I refer to as being broken are the Appalachian residents' physical homes.While in Appalachia, those I was traveling with and I worked on repairing homes and other structures.
•More than 40% of Appalachia residents are living in poverty, and of the 60% who are not, a large number are living on the border line of poverty.
Appalachian residents are more prone to chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
The poverty rate in the Appalachian Mountains is about three times the poverty rate for all of America.
