NETworX is a movement to measurably reduce poverty at its holistic core, not through well-doing for others, but through well-being together. NETworX is individuals and communities seeking together to build intentional relationships though education and love of neighbor as well as love of self.

Coming in April!

NETworX will host a Poverty Simulation from 12:30-3:30 p.m. on April 21 at FUMC.

When individuals, low-income families, and senior citizens live in daily stress situations to provide food, shelter, and basic needs for themselves and their families, our whole community suffers.

If you participate in this poverty simulation it will enable you as a participant to view poverty from different angles and settings, where you live the reality of life with a shortage of money and an abundance of stress.
