Western Springs hosts a poverty immersion program, open to all, from 2-5 p.m. This program is developed by the Communities First Association (cfapartners.org), and allows participants to experience firsthand what it is like to live in material and social poverty throughout three “days” of about 20 minutes each. Participants role-play characters based on actual people as they go about the daily tasks of working, commuting, and negotiating social services.
