Rethink Poverty: The Community Action Poverty Simulation (CAPS)

This interactive, immersive program is a profoundly moving experience as it encourages people to think about the harsh realities of poverty and to talk about how communities can address the problem. Most importantly, it moves people to make a difference. CAPS bridges the gap from misconception to understanding. It sensitizes community participants to the realities of poverty as it is based on real Community Action clients and their lives. CAPS exists to promote poverty awareness, increase understanding, and inspire local change.
