More than 1 million children in North Carolina live in poor or low-income households. Houston Insurance Agency understands the scope of the problem and is stepping up to be part of the solution. We cannot see children living in financially insecure households. Unfortunately, nearly half of North Carolina’s children (43%) live in poor or low-income homes. Growing up in poverty increases the likelihood that a child will be exposed to factors that can harm brain development, making success in school and life harder to achieve. “Our agency is committed to helping people rise above their current circumstances and move forward to leading fulfilled meaningful lives,” says Kyle Houston, agency owner.
