Poverty Simulation changed the way I thought about poverty. There are so many challenges that come with a lack of resources. This experience helped me learn how to better empathize with those struggling in our community.

Do you want to spark social change in your community?
Poverty Simulation is a 3-hour transformative, role-playing experience that demonstrates what life is like during a given month for families experiencing poverty.
During these simulations, participants examine poverty through a different lens and discover biases, explore barriers in their community, and discuss solutions.

Poverty Simulation is ideal for:
- Anybody who interacts with our neighbors experiencing poverty.
- Those wanting to change our community for the better.
- Curious and inquisitive community members with a passion for growing in understanding.
