Poverty Hubs

Boston's poorest neighborhoods are getting poorer, according to a new study: "The study points to concentrated need in Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roxbury, where 42 percent of children live in poverty, the densest cluster of childhood poverty in the state ... 85 percent of families are headed by a single parent, mainly mothers, and at least 20 percent of the adults have no high school diploma."
