Poverty Simulation Program Scheduled for April 12

Purdue Extension of Pulaski County, in partnership with Community Action Poverty Simulation, will be holding a poverty simulation program on Saturday, April 12. This is geared to place residents in various life-like activities to demonstrate how families living in poverty survive from day to day.

Participants will be assuming the role of a low-income family member living on a limited budget. Four 15-minute sessions will be held and each session will represent one week in which you must provide for your family and maintain your home.

Officials at Purdue Extension are offering this opportunity to anyone wanting to learn more about low-income situations and how to address this at a local level.

Space is limited for participation so you are encouraged to RSVP to the Pulaski County Extension Office by April 1. Call (574) 946-3412.

The event will be held Saturday, April 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Winamac. This is a free event and breakfast/lunch will be provided.
