“Getting Through Hard Times” Project begins Monday

The holidays may be a time of rejoicing across the country, but more and more Upper Michigan families seem to be feeling a financial pinch.

Poverty and homelessness are the focus of a week–long series of reports December 12–16 in a partner project between the Mining Journal and ABC 10 news.

In the joint project, “Getting Through Hard Times,” poverty and homelessness will be the focus.

The reports will show how people are struggling to make ends meet, often only getting by instead of getting ahead.

In the Mining Journal, reporter Renee Prusi will look closely at the poverty issue. Abc 10’s Jen Cleary will look at homelessness.

The print and broadcast partner project, “Getting Through Hard Times” December 12–16, will also be online at miningjournal.net.
