“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/)
