“It was very overwhelming.” “We just needed a hand up.” “You had to make decisions about what you can do without.” “You couldn’t have any errors on any level just to break even.” “I was so happy when it was over.” These were some of the words spoken by Dawson County community members and business leaders following Family Connection’s Nov. 15 “Poverty Simulation” event.
