Welcome to the Changemaker Challenge

The Changemaker Challenge is your chance to walk in the shoes of your neighbors in the Triangle. 

Locally, one in five people is experiencing the effects of poverty today. Limited income, resulting from intentional decisions and unintentional experiences, sometimes means limited choices. 

Please take a moment to read this family’s story. Once you’re ready, you’ll make choices on their behalf and see what the outcomes might be. Each story is based on real-world situations. 

You can make these decisions on your own or as part of a group. If you are working as a group, it may help to have one person read the text aloud to the others. Click below to begin.
