U.S. Census: Impoverished areas growing in El Paso County

Jay Abbott and his wife, Frozie, chose to remain on Mill St. even after they had a house fire. Their neighborhood is one of the poorest in El Paso County. Jay is a welder and made the fence to match an old gate they found behind the house. Photo by JERILEE BENNETT, THE GAZETTE
