Lebanon County Christian Ministries and Lebanon Valley College are teaming up to provide a unique poverty simulation experience on Friday, April 24, 2020, 5:30-8:30 pm at Church of the Good Shepherd, 1500 Quentin Road, Lebanon.
The Community Action Poverty Simulation breaks
down stereotypes by allowing participants to step
into the real life situations of others.
Poverty is often portrayed as a stand alone
issue - but this simulation allows individuals
to walk a month in the shoes of someone who
is facing poverty and realize how complex and
interconnected issues of poverty really are. Examples include:
• A single parent with limited resources and no
transportation must find a way to get to work
and get their child to daycare.
• An elderly person must find a way to pay for
both utilities and medication.
• A young adult must care for siblings while their
parent is incarcerated.
• An elderly couple must raise their
grandchildren and deal with their own health
and employment issues.
After the experience, individuals then have the
opportunity to discuss what they’ve learned with
