Poverty Simulator

 

THE FACILITATOR OF THIS EVENT HAD TO CANCEL, SO WE UNFORTUNATELY ARE NO LONGER HOSTING THE POVERTY SIMULATOR ON 11/4.
WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE. 


Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS) Experience

In partnership with National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) and Temple Israel’s Social Action Affinity Group

Join us for a hands-on learning session about poverty, where you’ll have the opportunity to experience what life is like for thousands of low-income St. Louis individuals and families who face poverty every day. The simulation will help us to understand the human cost of poverty and the effect it has on the cycles of drug and alcohol abuse, violence, incarceration, and teen pregnancy.
