Poverty Simulation

Poverty Simulation 2018

Join in a live role-playing simulation of families trapped in poverty. We hope this eye-opening look into the impossible decisions – between food and clothing, between healthcare and monthly rent – that millions of Americans are forced to make every day will foster empathy and awareness of the needs in our community.

Suggested participation donation: menstrual hygiene products for YWCA Labyrinth.

The Poverty Simulation is sponsored by YWCA and Multicultural Leadership Program and through the generous support of the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation.
