The Wilson family had to spend an extra $200 a month on therapy for their two boys. The Morgan family packed up and fled from an abusive home. Another household had their hours cut at work.

While these are fictional families created for a poverty simulation created by the United Way of Central Indiana, their stories are based on real life situations.
