United Way – Poverty Simulation

October 16 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

The poverty simulation is a unique and powerful experience which challenges perceptions, changes perspectives and strengthens understanding and empathy.

Participants experience a full range of encounters, obstacles and challenges, while trained volunteers populate the simulation as business owners, teachers, police officers, agency workers, service providers and government employees.

The simulation replicates a month in the life of a family living in poverty. The ultimate mission of each of these families is to provide food, shelter and other basic needs with a limited income.
