Urban Ministries of Durham: Spent

We're all just a few steps away from homelessness

Published on May 23, 2011

Editor's Pick

Developed by McKinney for homelessness charity United Ministries of Durham, Spent is an online game designed to educate people about poverty, homelessness and the charity's work.

The website asks players to accept a challenge; that they'd never need help. It then takes them through a series of situations where they need to find a job, a home and afford the basics - showing just how easy it would be to fall into in poverty. At the end, players are invited to get involved with the charity or make a donation.. They can also share their results via social media.
