The ongoing problem of urban poverty has resisted almost all attempts at finding a solution. This paper proposes that by mobilizing the available labor in a poor urban neighborhood, poverty can be alleviated. This will require a motivated community organizer along with community leaders who together will organize community work teams which operate by issuing a local neighborhood currency that is backed by the work teams' labor.
