“SPENT” – This free online game helps people understand what it’s like to be homeless in America.

From Urban Ministries of Durham, NC:

Challenge the way you think about poverty and homelessness in the United States.

Work hard. Do the right thing. “Homelessness is something that will never happen to me.”

Sometimes, all it takes is one life-changing experience to land you in trouble.

How would you cope? Where would you go? What would you do? Figure something out, right?

We invite you to take the challenge…Play SPENT ( http://playspent.org/)

  1. Every one understands that men’s life seems to be expensive, but people require cash for various stuff and not every one earns big sums money.

  2. My friend’s parent just became homeless. He is trying to help them get back on their feet. This game really brings home how sad homelessness is.
