Amanda Mills in the car that Samaritan Car Care Clinic helped her purchase. COVINGTON, Ky. — Amanda Mills loved her 1991 Ford Taurus. Her grandfather gave it to her several years ago, and the car was just what she needed to leave an abusive relationship. “That was my baby, you know?

Food Insecurity: It's Only The Surface Of A Sea Of Inequality

Let's take a moment and think about food insecurity: How is it different from hunger? Why does it matter? Food insecurity, according to the USDA, is “a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food.” Essentially, food insecurity is the inability of a household, family or individual to adequately access a diet that meets their needs for both caloric intake and nutritional value. Hunger, on the other hand, is a “physiological condition that may result from

LGBTQ youth faces an 'epidemic' within the COVID pandemic — a lack of safe housing

As COVID-19 cases were rising in early summer, Eli, a young homeless man, called upward of 20 shelters in Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan in search of a place to stay.
