Peter's resolved critical issues

One critical issue that has been resolved in my community is poverty. Poverty in Newburgh has not been completely solved, however big steps have been taken and have made a large impact. Many soup kitchens, shelters, and other programs have been designed and implemented into my community in order to fight poverty and all of the other issues that come with it. It is up to the citizens in the community to make the real difference in Newburgh, we can’t sit back and wait for politicians and city officials to solve the problems, because we have already tried that and it doesn’t work. I have actively participated in many of these programs over the years and through my experiences I know that they are making an impact on our community. However, as I mentioned earlier, there is much more that needs to be done in order to solve the problems that our community faces.
