Video: Volunteers needed for 8th annual Poverty Simulation event


WENATCHEE – The Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council and Intermountain AmeriCorps are hosting their 8th annual Poverty Simulation event on November 4, 2016 from noon to 4 pm at the Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Church.

During this free, informative simulation community members will get the opportunity to get a small idea of what it is like to live homeless.
“It is difficult for those of us who have enough to truly understand the situations that families living in poverty experience every day—the decisions they have to make, and the fears and frustrations they feel,” the event’s website states.

To make the workshop successful, they need 60-80 participants and volunteers. They currently have roughly 40.

NCWLIFE sat down with Carli Ludlow, the Intermountain AmeriCorps VISTA team leader, to learn more about the event and what participants learn from their experience.
