DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE POOR?

Spalding University presents its first ever Community-Wide Poverty Simulation facilitated by Ministries United of South Central Louisville (MUSCL).

The University Center Ballroom
824 S. 4th Street

What is a poverty simulation?  According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, “a poverty simulation is a learning tool created to help people understand the realities of poverty.”

Could you survive off of $438.67 a week / $1,900 a month for a family of four? We welcome you to try. We welcome you to come take a walk down poverty lane with us to get a glimpse into what it is like for those living in poverty everyday in our society.
