Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. But unless you've experienced poverty, it's difficult to truly understand. In Philadelphia and surrounding communities, poverty remains a heartbreaking and intractable reality for far too many.

One in four families in Philadelphia live in poverty—the highest rate among the 10 most populous cities in the U.S.

During the Poverty Simulation, you will take on the identity of a real person in poverty. People with experience providing services operate stations.

This is a simulation, not a game. The object is to sensitize participants to the realities faced by low-income people.
