The Community action poverty simulation is provided for agencies aiming to promote poverty awareness. The poverty simulation increases the understanding of the struggles that accompany poverty, and helps to inspire local change among their workers.
It is a profoundly moving experience. It moves people to think about the harsh realities of poverty and to talk about how communities can address the problem. Most importantly, it moves people to make a difference.

The Community Action Poverty Simulation breaks down stereotypes by allowing participants to step into real-life situations of others. Poverty is often portrayed as a stand-alone issue, but this simulation allows individuals to walk a month in the shoes of someone who is facing poverty and realize how complex and interconnected issues of poverty really are.
