A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Part of our outreach program is a role-play simulation for any business/agency/school/church in the community that wants to develop a greater understanding of the issues related to poverty. Leadership Lincoln alumni volunteer to facilitate the simulation and then engage in a conversation with the participants following their experience to help them see the challenges facing those in the community experiencing poverty.
Often times the participants share, "I had no idea it was this much of a struggle" and "How do you find time for your kids?". It has been and extremely impactful exercise and one that is in high demand.
