The Poverty Game, Coming April 16th

worn-shoesThe Community Inclusion Network and St. Thomas University are hosting a “Poverty Game” on April 16th, facilitated by the Urban Core Support Network.

The workshop is designed to help people better understand what it might be like to live and raise a family on a low income.

People are put into teams, where they will need to make and live by a budget as they face difficult choices during a simulated month.

It doesn’t cost anything to participate in this workshop on April 16th from 6 – 8 pm in the basement of St. Michael’s Church in Chatham.

For more information or to register contact Rébeka Frazer-Chiasson, Coordinator of Community Inclusion Network Region 7 at (506) 424-1702.
