Catholic Charities Fort Worth invites you to participate in a virtual event that will allow you to walk in the shoes of the clients we serve. During this Poverty Simulation you will gain a better understanding of the interconnected barriers that keep families in poverty and the tough choices they have to make every single day.
Why should you attend? Over 145,000 people in Fort Worth alone live in poverty. This virtual experience is designed to increase your knowledge and awareness of what living in poverty is like, and help you understand the everyday barriers our clients face. At Catholic Charities Fort Worth we are passionate about walking with thousands of families on their unique pathway out of poverty. If you have ever been curious if YOU could make it through a month in poverty, this is for you!
What should you expect as a participant? The simulation is based on a variety of real life family scenarios. You will face the tough decisions our clients make regularly, with a goal of making it through one month. Each simulation has a maximum of eight guests, to ensure each guest can interact and join in the discussion and decision making.
