Tipping Point Community partnered with sociologists and political scientists from the University of California, Berkeley, and the Othering & Belonging Institute for a year-long study to get a holistic and nuanced picture of poverty in the Bay Area. As a poverty-fighting organization, we often talk about the people in the Bay Area who are unable to meet their basic needs. But exactly how many people, who is the most impacted, what trade-offs are people making to get by, and what does being unable to meet your basic needs feel like?
