Living on the Edge

May 29 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Living on the Edge is a unique group experience that takes an honest look at poverty by providing a glimpse into what it might be like for families living in low-income situations. Participants are placed in family units and provided with a summary of their financial situation. The simulation then asks “families” to perform day-to-day tasks like sending children to school or childcare, getting to or finding work, paying bills, visiting social services, buying groceries, cashing cheques, and more.

Past participants have reported that they have a greater understanding of the many challenges faced by those living in poverty while trying to change their circumstances.

United Way of Brandon & District has partnered with United Way of Thunder Bay to present Living on the Edge right here in Thunder Bay!

Registration is $25 per person. Lunch provided by Dew Drop Inn.
