Every day, thousands of families across Cass and Clay Counties perform an intricate financial balancing act while trying to make ends meet.

Your child wants to play soccer after school. You've got to do something about that painful tooth. Just 7 days left on your bus pass. Do you, once again, depend on others for a ride to work? Say no to your daughter when all she dreams about is joining the team? Put off a visit to the dentist and push through the pain that keeps you from concentrating at work?

What if you were forced to decide between picking up a needed prescription and putting food on the table for your kids? Many of us, thankfully, have never had to make these kinds of choices.

A Day In The Life is an interactive volunteer experience that depicts real-life scenarios faced by many of the families living in poverty in Cass and Clay Counties, sometimes one paycheck away from homelessness.

Underlying many social issues is a single but massive problem: POVERTY. One of United Way's Bold Goals is to lift people out of poverty, but how can we lift people out of poverty, if we don't understand it? We invite you to join us for one of two Poverty Simulations on May 25th at Microsoft. Register by clicking on the session you wish to attend.
