Back to school season can be one of jittery nerves or unabashed excitement for students who are timid or eager about returning to the classroom after a long summer break. For some families, the new school year also brings about an influx of costs – and a serious financial burden.

Local organizations in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati are stepping up to ease that burden for low-income families. Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss are Campbell Connection/Families in Transition Coordinator Megan VonHandorf; St. Vincent DePaul Cincinnati Director of Social Services Mary Reid; and Be Concerned Executive Director Andy Brunsman.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
