CPS is aware that there is a need for greater exposure to cultures through training. This awareness has led to CPS collaborating with DFPS Center for Learning and Organizational Excellence (CLOE) to procure and develop courses in working with African American and Latino families as well as a course on working with impoverished families. In FY 2013, CPS began conducting poverty simulations for staff and external stakeholders. The simulations are designed to increase understanding of impoverished families. This training incorporates the finding that suggests a better understanding of the intersection of race and poverty are needed.
