Over 60 guests participated in a Poverty Simulation at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church on October 9th. Understanding Poverty was a unique, enlightening experience that helped participants to better understand what life is like with a shortage of

money and an abundance of stress. "It moved people to think about the harsh realities of poverty." said Board Member and participant, Suzy Salomon.

The simulation left a lasting impression on participants.

Thank you St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and TXU Energy!
