Walk in their Shoes
Saturday, May 5th
For those of us who have never “walked in their shoes,” we probably have a hard time understanding what life is like for a person who lives in poverty. The Cost of Poverty Experience, or COPE, is a three-hour interactive event that offers a glimpse into the lives of low-income individuals and families living in the community.
COPE offers a snapshot of the obstacles that are faced, the decisions that are made, and the consequences that impact families every day. COPE also reveals how the policies and systems within our community help or hinder the progress of these families.You'll come away from this event reexamining your assumptions about people who live in poverty and the challenges that face them.
Participation is free, but space is limited and registration is required.
