Poverty Simulation Trainings

The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS) educates everyone, from policy makers to local community leaders, about the strategies of a low-income family trying to survive day-to-day with little money and lots of stress. Participants assume the roles of  families facing poverty. Their task is to provide for basic necessities and shelter using limited resources.

*CAPS is a copyrighted tool made available by the Missouri Association for Community Action to organizations that want to promote a greater understanding of poverty.
