South Tucson isn’t just one of the poorest towns in the state, South Tucson is actually one of the poorest towns in all of America. The city is an enclave of the much larger city of Tuscon in Pima County, Arizona.

Being able to afford a $77,700 house on a less than $21,160 annual income would be a difficult feat, so just imagine trying to afford buying your own home when you bring in less than $10,000 a year.
