“A Paycheck Away”- How Will Your Story End?Mindblowing. Heartbreaking. Real life. Inspiring. These are all words players have used to describe A Paycheck Away, a board game that puts you in the shoes of a real homeless person or family. The game games was developed by Bottom Line Performance, a learning game solutions company, in partnership with Dayspring Center Family Emergency Shelter. Players are put in the shoes of a real homeless person or family. Players represent one of the four “real-life” homeless characters and assume the individual circumstances that lead them to become homeless. The object of the game is to get yourself and as many of your teammates as possible out of homelessness within 3 months.
We Applaud You!Thanks to many generous supporters, Dayspring Center met their goal in the "30K in 30 Days" Campaign! We also want to thank the Glick Fund.
