Produced by WSKG, Chasing the Dream is a comprehensive three-year poverty awareness campaign centered on the Southern Tier region of New York. Incorporating television, radio and digital media, this project sheds light on the root causes of local poverty, the reality of what poverty looks like in our region and the successes and challenges of poverty-reduction efforts taking place in our communities. This webpage serves as the online destination for all poverty-related content aired by WSKG and is also a resource for those seeking information on community organizations that support those living in poverty. WSKG thanks the Conrad and Virginia Klee Foundation, the Community Foundation of South Central New York, and the United Way of Broome County for their support of this project.
