A report launched today says that almost one in four South Australians lives in poverty.
The South Australian Council of Social Service (SACOSS) released its 10-year blueprint for the elimination of poverty.
Among the targets are halving the number of long-term unemployed, boosting preventative health care funding and cutting the cost of housing.
SACOSS executive director Karen Grogan says the targets are ambitious but achievable.
"There are a number of cynics around who'll tell you that we'll always have poverty," she said.
"I think that's a fairly negative place to start. We need to start from a point where we say this isn't the society that we want for our children to grow up in, for ourselves to live in."
