"Single-parent families are hardest hit. A single mother in Chester County with one infant preschool child needs to earn $69,613 yearly to be self-sufficient, according to the most recent survey performed by Pathways Pa., an organization whose goal is to keep low-income, vulnerable women together with their children.
