The City of Mission held a Poverty Simulation to help our City Employees learn to be advocates from a place of knowledge, as well as compassion.


Participants took part in a guided experience designed to help them understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month. During the simulation, participants assumed the roles of different families facing poverty. The purpose was to provide invaluable experience and impact the perspectives on our Community and the impoverished.
