Atlanta Program Aims To Break Cycle Of Generational Poverty

An outreach project in Atlanta, Georgia, is trying to break the cycle of generational poverty one child at a time. The Agape Youth and Family Center offers after-school programs for young children and in-school support for older students. The goal is to get students to graduate high school and go on to college.
