Dallas Social Venture Partners invites you to join in an unusual experience here at Central Dallas Ministries on Monday, June 2, 2008 from 5:00 until 7:30 p.m. The two-hour "Poverty Simulation" will afford participants the opportunity to assume the role of a "family" facing the unique challenges associated with poverty.
The task of the "families" (you'll be assigned a group in which to live for the experience) is to provide for basic necessities and shelter during the course of the 15-minute "weeks" of the experience.
The Simulation has been successful around the country in helping participants begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. It is a simulation, not a game. By taking part, you will gain a greater understanding of the difficulties facing families trapped in poverty.
Reservations are required.
