Description

The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS) is a unique tool that community action agencies use to educate everyone from policy makers to local community leaders about the day to day realities of life with a shortage of money and an abundance of stress. During a simulation, participants simulate the lives of low income families, from single parents trying to care for their children, to senior citizens trying to maintain their self-sufficiency on Social Security.

You will be tasked with providing food, shelter, and other basic necessities for your family while interacting with various community resources.
