Pray For...
From St. Barnabas Kutztown

Imagine you're down to your last $1000? Would you make it?

Urban Ministries of Durham, NC, developed an on-line simulation game called  SPENT to demonstrate how you would fare if you faced the decisions many working poor face daily.

At the beginning of the simulation, you’re unemployed and have only $1,000 left in your bank account. You need to get a low wage job and attend to life’s necessities—food, shelter, childcare, medical fees. The simulation is a reminder of the difficulties encountered by the working poor.
