Can you survive a month in poverty?
Take the Poverty Challenge and learn what it is like.
Nearly 900,000 of our neighbors – including 300,000 children – live below the poverty line. That makes Alabama the seventh poorest state in the nation.
Experience the Community Action Poverty Simulation to understand the challenges faced by individuals in our community who are living at or below the poverty level. Those who have taken the challenge report a drastically new perspective, as well as a new respect for those facing poverty. Learn more on our website.
