You’ve probably heard that poverty is pervasive in our community. But what does that really mean? And how can we help our neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet?

Unless you walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, it’s tough to know. That’s why United Way of Central Indiana is hosting an experiential event designed to help you understand what it feels like to live in poverty.

Take a deep-dive into real Central Indiana scenarios by participating in Real Life. Real Choices: A Poverty Simulation.

Your group will break into low-income family units, create a month’s budget and attempt to financially navigate through an unforeseen circumstance. Then, you will learn firsthand the services and opportunities these real families utilized to get back on stable ground.

Afterward, join in a discussion about your experience and poverty in our community.
