One in three North Texans can’t weather a financial storm that lasts 90 days. The problem's known as asset poverty, and it doesn't discriminate. A job loss, health emergency, even legal trouble is enough to plunge a third of our friends and neighbors into financial distress.
KERA's series One Crisis Away is following four North Texas families on the financial edge.
On March 27, a one-hour special will air on KERA-TV, Channel 13, that features these families and explores asset poverty. The special will air again on Channel 13 at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. March 30 and 11 p.m. April 8.
The special was taped in front of a live audience at the Dallas City Performance Hall. We livestreamed the event -- we've posted the video below.
