My wife and I recently moved to one of the country’s wealthiest suburban areas – Montgomery County. For us, along with many Americans, a move to the suburbs symbolized the promise of better schools and safer neighborhoods. But the offer of “a better life in the suburbs” is quickly evaporating for many people who now live here. Despite its reputation, a growing number of people who reside in this wealthy county just 20 miles outside the nation’s capital are poor and struggling. In fact, no other county in the Washington D.C. region, including the District of Columbia, has experienced increases in poverty of the same magnitude as Montgomery County.
