Poverty Simulation

What is a Poverty Simulation?
An interactive experience where participants are placed into a scenario of a low income family. Your family is then faced with typical barriers that families experience when trying to make ends meet. Roles are based off of real families. The goal of those participating in the simulation is to meet the needs of your family for one month.
