Poverty stops here


Today is a momentous day. Working at the intersection of policymaker and changemaker, Darwin has a plan to end poverty.

Following a 2-year research project, we are concurrently releasing our inaugural report, The Hidden War: Finding Opportunity After 54 Years along with a suite of systems innovations called unpack™. These insights-in-action promise to serve the 1,000+ frontline agencies and the 15.6 million individuals they serve. On the fiscal side, the numbers are even more staggering: the potential to save the country nearly $60,000,000 on an approximately $600,000,000 federal budget line item. Together, we can strengthen frontline organizations, destigmatize poverty, rally and empower neighbors, and pave the way for exponential private investment to an age-old social challenge.
