A Poverty Simulation is an exploration of the challenges that families in poverty (like NFCC clients) face every day. Participants are divided into family units reflecting pre-assigned skills, income, housing and a variety of stumbling blocks. They are given tasks to complete in a two-hour role-play. Volunteers run the community tables like Employment Office, Transportation, Jail, School, Charity, etc. During the simulation, challenges arise and participants must decide what to do. There are laughs and frustrations along the way. At the end, the group will discuss what they experienced and learned.
