Opportunity:Poverty Spiral Simulation in April with United Way in Allegheny County

Date:04/25/2024 09:00 AM - 04/25/2024 10:30 AM

Agency:United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania

Join United Way as we facilitate the Poverty Spiral simulation in Allegheny County at our office in Pittsburgh. 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?"

This event will take place at 1250 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh PA, 15222. If you have any questions, please reach out to Allaina Wagner at allaina.wagner@unitedwayswpa.org

United Way strives to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. To request an accommodation or for inquiries about accessibility, please contact Elisha Serotta, elisha.serotta@unitedwayswpa.org or 412-456-6718.
