This is the fifth year the program has been offered. To date, more than 1,500 UNCW students and community members have participated in the simulation, which provides an opportunity to get a glimpse into some of the challenges families living in poverty face every day.

Spring simulations will be offered on Wednesday, February 25 and Thursday, March 19.  Both events will be held in Room 162 from 5:30 – 8 p.m.
