Get Informed and then Advocate…Learn More About Poverty in Our Community

“A Day In The Life: Perspective on Poverty” is an interactive volunteer experience that depicts real-life scenarios faced by many of the families living in poverty in Cass and Clay Counties who are sometimes one paycheck away from homelessness or crisis.

On Thursday, Decmeber 7, more than 100 people will be a part of this event at Microsoft. 

Two of the most popular requests that we recieve after people experience this "A Day in the Life Perspective on Poverty Event" is:

How Do I Learn More?
