There are so many reasons why residents are proud to call Alabama “home, sweet home.” It’s got beautiful mountains, sunny beaches, and that fabled Southern hospitality. It’s where George Washington Carver studied peanuts, Tuskegee Airmen trained to serve the country from the skies, and where Harper Lee wrote, To Kill a Mockingbird.
Alabama is the fourth poorest state in the U.S. More than than 19 percent of Alabamians live below the federal poverty line and the state’s food insecurity rate is at nearly 19 percent. With stats like these, it’s crucial that nonprofits alleviating poverty and hunger in Alabama succeed. Since 2015, TechBridge has provided nonprofits focused on these issues with technology that enables them to serve more people and do more good.
