Park County Poverty Simulations

In 2016, Park County received a grant from the Foundation of the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming and Christ Episcopal Church to implement Poverty Simulations in Park County.  The Poverty Simulation is a unique, enlightening experience that helps individuals begin to understand what life is like with a shortage of money and an abundance of stress.  It moves people to think about the harsh realities of poverty and to talk about how communities can address the problem collectively.  

The Simulation is a 4-hour event.  Park County typically schedules 2 events a year.  The next scheduled events are:
