Cost of Povery Experience 

COPE is an interactive simulation that gives a real experience of poverty.

The Cost of Poverty Experience is a 2.5 hour immersive experience that gives you the opportunity to gain a glimpse into the lives of families in our communities that face poverty everyday. Many organizations and communities across the nation use COPE to work more effectively with low-income families. COPE gives participants and volunteers an opportunity to experience poverty firsthand through the eyes of real families. The experiential nature of this training helps organizations and communities more deeply understand the complexities of poverty, paving the way for addressing the issues of poverty more comprehensively.
