Poverty Simulation

November 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Could you survive a month in poverty?

Millions of Americans live in poverty every day. Many more have incomes above the poverty line, but their incomes are still low enough that they can’t afford basic needs such as food, decent housing, or quality child care.

How does a poverty simulation work?
A simulation provides participants with the opportunity to assume the role of a low-income family member living on a limited budget. The experience is divided into four 15-minute sessions, each of which represents one week in which you must provide for your family and maintain your home.

RSVP by November 2 to RachelWise@mybrightpoint.org or 260-423-3546 ext. 262
