LCCAA to Host Poverty Simulation

posted 9/29/16 -- LCCAA hopes to show area leaders the challenges of living in poverty.

LCCAA has partnered with Lorain County Children and Families Council and the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies to host Living on the Edge: A Community Action Poverty Simulation.

The simulation is a unique interactive experience providing insight into what low-income families experience on a daily basis.

Participants will experience realistic stressors associated with living in poverty as well as asking for and receiving services. They will also become aware of the multiple barriers to accessing community services and come to understand the fragile relationship between service providers and recipients.

Living on the Edge is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 7 at the Lorain County Transportation and Community Center, 40 East Ave., Elyria, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and lunch is included.
