What would you do if you had to choose paying rent or putting food on your table or covering childcare expenses? Unfortunately thousands of people across our state are forced to make these hard decisions.
The Poverty Simulation is an immersive experience designed to help people get a glimpse of the realities of living in poverty. During the simulation, participants are confronted with a series of complex challenges that mimic obstacles faced many families in our community.
Our hope is that this simulation wouldn’t be a one-time experience, but that we rethink poverty and work together to make the issues surrounding poverty an ongoing conversation.
In order for participants to get the full experience of the poverty simulation we need volunteers. To learn more or to register to become a volunteer for any of our upcoming simulations, click here to visit the UVolunteer portal.
