The latest census numbers show 13 percent of people in Deschutes County are living in poverty, while 15 percent did last year.
Jason Carr, the Executive Director of Partnership to End Poverty says they see a great need in the community and are helping a lot of people.
He expects the number of those living below the poverty line to stay at this level for a couple more years until the housing market rebounds.
