Allegan Homeless Solutions will hold its third annual Summit on Homelessness on October 9, 2019. The event will include a Poverty Simulation in which the attendees, comprised of human service workers and community members, take on the role of someone living in poverty. This experience allows individuals to feel, first hand, the stress, anxiety, and panic those living in poverty feel every day. Attendees will spend one hour, with every fifteen minutes representing a week, trying to pay their bills, maintain a job and feed their children with little income and limited transportation. Our hope is that the attendees not only gain knowledge and respect for those living in poverty, but they find the same drive Allegan Homeless Solutions has to create change.
Please bring a minimum of 1 jar of peanut butter to donate.
Continuing Education Credits will be available at the cost of $25. Payment will be taken the day of the event at check-in.
