OSOPHE Is Pleased To Bring: Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE)

Think Tank, Inc. is a non-profit organization that offers a variety of trainings to comprehensively address poverty.  Their mission is “Think Tank, Inc. exists to alleviate poverty by equipping communities to embrace mindsets and practices that restore the social fabric of society”. They will be facilitating a 2.5 hour training on The Cost of Poverty Experience during Friday’s session.


One in five children in America live at or below the poverty line. These numbers should disturb us, yet statistics can have a numbing effect.  The Cost of Poverty Experience offers an opportunity to gain a glimpse into the lives of families in our communities that face poverty every day.


Through the sponsorship of the CareSource Foundation, Think Tank developed COPE with low-income individuals who shared their story to give participants an opportunity to move beyond stereotypes to a more holistic understanding of the causes and effects of poverty.  Also captured in the experience is the role that the broader community plays in their interactions with low-income families. Many organizations and communities across the nation use COPE to work more effectively with low-income families. This is because the experiential nature of this training helps organizations and communities more deeply
understand the complexities of poverty, paving the way to address the issues more comprehensively.
