Do you know what this term means? “Invisible Poverty” is something that seems to slip through the cracks in American society – many people don’t even know it exists.

It’s not only an unknown phenomenon to many Americans, but it’s also not easy to explain to people who haven’t experienced it firsthand.

A Tumblr user wrote an important post about their conversation with a wealthy friend concerning how hard it is to escape poverty and why it goes so unnoticed by so many.

The post is lengthy, but read the whole thing and pay attention, because the words are powerful.
