Opportunity:Poverty Spiral Simulation in Westmoreland County

Date:02/16/2023 03:30 PM - 02/16/2023 05:00 PM

Agency:United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania

Join United Way as we facilitate the Poverty Spiral simulation in Westmoreland County at our office in Greensburg. The Poverty Spiral provides an opportunity to increase empathy towards those in our region who experience poverty and better understand the decision-making required to survive in financial instability. This simulation requires you to put yourself in the shoes of someone else and face situations without clear solutions. We hope that this interactive and impactful experience will leave you with an open mind, challenge your preconceived notions about poverty, increase awareness of the struggles of many of our Southwestern PA neighbors, and ask yourself, "What next?"
