Mayor launches pilot program to fight poverty in Toledo

TOLEDO -- Toledo's mayor and several community agencies are coming together, to try to lift people out of poverty.

Members of the mayor's commission on poverty announced they're planning to launch a pilot program targeting specific neighborhoods to connect poor people with the help they need.

The challenge will be to remove barriers and break the cycle of poverty. Mayor Finkbeiner explained, "One individual, one family, one house, and one neighborhood at a time."

The mayor says within 30 days he'll announce which neighborhood will be targeted first.
