Description

Are you ready for a life-changing experience?

One in five children in America live at or below the poverty line. ​These numbers should disturb us, yet statistics can have a numbing effect. The Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE) offers an opportunity to gain a glimpse into the lives of families in our communities that face poverty everyday.

Think Tank and the CareSource Foundation partnered to develop COPE, which was co-designed with low-income individuals who shared their story to give participants a glimpse into the lives of low-income individuals and families living in our community. Their stories go beyond the stereotype of what is seen on the news or written about under-resourced individuals. Also captured in the experience is the role that the broader community plays in their interactions with low-income families.
