Virginia is home to four of 10 richest counties in the nation, yet the statewide child poverty rate is at its highest level since 1998 and the number of residents who live in deep poverty has jumped by more than 20 percent since 2007, according to newly released census data.
"The census information has shed even more light on the fact that so many more people in our community are on the verge of homelessness or not able to afford to live in the area," said Dean Klein, director of the county's Office to Prevent and End Homelessness.
"People are having more and more challenges to find employment and survive in our community," said Mr. Klein, adding that the average monthly income for those families was $1,200.
