Cutting crime, poverty goals of new Savannah website

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

With one in five Savannahians currently living in poverty, a citizens' group has launched a website to help connect the needy to community resources.

It's www.enuffsavannah.org, and it lists more than 300 resources – from where to get discounted prescriptions to how to get a ride to work to where to get help with childcare costs.

The ultimate goal of the site is to cut crime by combatting poverty.

Website developer Stephen Lambeth says it's aimed at, "people who want to do right and they want to do well.

They want the best for their families. But maybe they just don't have the tools to be able to do it. Or they're out there, but they just don't know where to go to get them."

The website was organized by a citizens non-profit dubbed Enuff and is supported by a cross section of Chatham County leaders, including District Attorney Meg Heap and Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson.
