The Cost of Poverty Experience simulation will be from 9 a.m. to noon at the Lebanon Valley Family YMCA, 201 N. Seventh St., Lebanon, and is open to the public. Pre-registration is required.
Participants will experience the day-to-day challenges of living in poverty. They will be given identities and a profile of employment, health and other features of typical families. In a compressed timeframe, they will have face-to-face interactions about public transportation, social services, finances, employment, food and shelter.
