Upcoming Poverty Simulations:
A Poverty Simulation is an interactive experience designed to reproduce the challenges of a typical low-income family as they work to navigate their environment. In the simulation, participants assume the role of family members living in poverty, and volunteers assume the role of service providers and other resource providers (i.e., healthcare provider, bank, employer, landlord, law enforcement, etc.).
