This day explores some of the social services that are offered in Stark County, along with an immersive poverty simulation experience. The day will begin at Sherrick Road Church of God where participants will learn how the church supports the community, followed by a conversation with SARTA CEO Kirt Conrad to explain the important role SARTA plays in Stark County transportation. Participants will then experience a poverty simulation where they get a first-hand opportunity to experience the struggles of managing family, work, and social service systems. Next, a tour and lunch will be served at Refuge of Hope, a men’s homeless shelter. The day will end with a tour of Stark Fresh, the newest organization to provide healthy food options in the previous food desert of downtown Canton.

($50 pp; 35-40 participant maximum)
