Special Report: Poverty in Stanislaus County

August 19, 2012 

The numbers of seniors in poverty are staggering. Almost half of Stanislaus County’s 68,000 residents 65 and older did not have sufficient income in 2007 to meet their basic needs. In the second part of a two-day series, reporters Kevin Valine and Patty Guerra take an in-depth look at chronic poverty in the county, profile some of those affected and share ideas to combat it.
