Tackling the Odds is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of disadvantaged youth. We have seen through research and statistics that the path to success is more difficult when one grows up in poverty. Low socioeconomic status is negatively linked to a wide range of troubles for children and teens. However, growing up disadvantaged does not seal one's fate. Tackling the Odds is a resource to enhance young people's lives and provide them with new opportunities.
