The Poverty Simulation provides people from all backgrounds an opportunity to walk in the shoes of a low-income family and be exposed to the realities of poverty.

Participants receive an assigned identity and family profile. They are provided the opportunity to experience "one month" of poverty compressed into real time of the simulation. Afterwards, there will be a debriefing where participants share insights of their experience.

Participants will encounter some unique circumstances that may cause them to think differently about poverty.

Simulation is FREE, however registration is required.  Complimentary lunch and break will be provided.  Participants must be willing to stay for the entire simulation. Interested participants can register at:  http://tinyurl.com/ycsq9v5o
