HOW DO WE GET OUR NEIGHBORS, OUR LEADERS,
OUR COMMUNITIES TO SEE HOW poverty
FEEDS INTO CYCLES OF TEEN PREGNANCY,
DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE, VIOLENCE AND INCARCERATION?

Community Action of Southern Kentucky’s Poverty Simulation can open people’s eyes to the human cost of poverty. The power of this unique learning resource is that it creates insight into the state of chronic crisis that consumes so many working poor families. Participants experience one month of poverty compressed into the real time of the simulation. Afterwards in the debriefing, they share insights of extraordinary vividness and intensity. As a result bankers, ministers, teachers, clerks, and ordinary people from all walks of life can share a very special kind of awakening.

Together we hold the keys to ending the cycles of isolation that destroy lives and sap the wealth of our communities. Armed with insight and united in our resolve, we can end poverty.
