Can You Survive a Month in Poverty?
Come join ROOF (Roofs Over Our Families) as we bring awareness of poverty in Somerset County with the Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS). This simulation is NOT a game. It is designed to help participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people.
This experience will last for 2.5 - 3 hours. It includes an introduction and briefing, the actual simulation exercise, and a debriefing period in which participants and volunteer staffers share their feelings and experiences and talk about what they have learned about the lives of people in poverty.
