“The mission of CORE Community Bourbon County is to overcome poverty in Bourbon County,” Jennifer Michaud, one of the advisory board members said. “Decreasing poverty will result in a better quality of life for our citizens and a healthier and more vibrant community.”
“We are bringing the Poverty Paradigm to town because we can’t begin to help our citizens overcome poverty if we do not understand it,” Michaud said. “The Poverty Paradigm is a simulation that will allow the participants to understand what it is like to live in poverty. By understanding poverty, we can then work with those who live it to empower them to overcome it as a community.”
The cost is $10 to participate.
“However, if individuals want to participate, but cannot afford the $10, then they can contact me directly. We do NOT want cost to be prohibitive!” she said.
