Poverty Stoplight is multi-dimensional poverty survey which uses 50 difference variables of poverty to measure resource access and deficits within the community. Developed by Fundacion Paraguaya, the survey is being used all over the globe and is giving government and institutions a better understanding of the needs of the people they serve. Roots of Renewal is the first organization to use the Poverty Stoplight survey in the United States, and is using collected data from residents to better inform programing and connect residents with organizations that provide the resources they need. 

In August 2018, Roots of Renewal launched Poverty Stoplight PA in Pittsburgh and Braddock, Pennsylvania bringing the survey and tool to Western PA. Click the box below to learn more about our work to eliminate poverty in Western Pennsylvania.
