One in three North Texans can’t weather a financial storm that lasts 90 days. The problem’s known as asset poverty, and it doesn’t discriminate. A job loss, health emergency, even legal trouble is enough to plunge a third of our friends and neighbors into financial distress.
KERA’s series One Crisis Away followed four families on the financial edge. The series includes radio stories, videos, blogging, and conversations on our mid-day talk program, THINK.
