Poverty Simulation Event

Why a simulation?

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. But unless you’ve experienced poverty, it’s difficult to truly understand. The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS) bridges that gap from misconception to understanding. CAPS is an interactive immersion experience. It sensitizes community participants to the realities of poverty.

CAPS is not a game. It is based on real Community Action clients and their lives. CAPS exists to:

  •  Promote Poverty Awareness- During the simulation, role-play a month in poverty and experience low-income families’ lives.
  • Increase Understanding- After the simulation, you will unpack your learning and brainstorm community change.
  • Inspire Local Change-Together, you can be a voice to end poverty in your family, friends and community.

Join Partners in Learning, Smart Start Rowan, and Neighbor to Neighbor for a poverty simulation on Tuesday, March 7th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

Due to the nature of the event, space is limited and registration is required. Register below.
