One Crisis Away

KERA’s One Crisis Away project focuses a spotlight on North Texans living on the financial edge both in weekly stories and regular in-depth series.

A job loss, health emergency, even legal trouble can be enough to plunge a third of our friends and neighbors into financial distress. One Crisis Away puts a human face on asset poverty and the financial struggles of people in Dallas-Fort Worth.  

Explore these multimedia projects: The Price of Prison, a look at incarceration's total financial toll; Still on the Edge, a financial follow-up on North Texans we featured five years prior; After the Flood, an examination of how life changed for Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey; and more.
