The Cost of Poverty Experience (C.O.P.E.)

March 19, 2014
8:30 am-12:00 pm
Athens Community Center

Facilitated by:
Think Tank, Inc.

The Cost of Poverty Experience gives people the opportunity to see for themselves the difficulties that low-income Americans face daily. COPE was designed by a team of professionals, advocates, VISTA volunteers and low-income persons who have been building relationships across class, race, and cultural lines for many years. This team wanted to provide a snapshot of what poverty looks like inside a low-income family. The portrayals of real stories of families living both in generational and situational poverty go beyond their stereotype of what is seen on the news or written about in the paper. Also captured in the experience is the role that the broader community plays in their interactions with families in poverty, and how policies and systems either help or hinder progress.
