Cindee Gold, center, playing the role of a mortgage banker, informs a “family” of their impending eviction. She was taking part in a Poverty Simulation put on in March for the Tennessee Conference of Social Workers by the Jewish Federation’s Community Relations Committee in cooperation with Catholic Charities of Tennessee and Metro Nashville Social Services. The objective of the simulation is to give participants a deeper understanding of the everyday challenges facing those living in poverty. Photo: Judy Saks
