A night to fight against homelessness.
On any given night in our community there are men, women and children who do not spend the night in their own homes. They stay with friends and relatives, in shelters, and in cars. This event gives us an opportunity to raise awareness of homelessness and participants will be able to experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside, overnight, living in a car. Night in a Car begins Friday, November 9 at 7pm at Grace Church of the Nazarene in Eureka with an evening program that is open to the entire community and will feature the Dream Center- Peoria Poverty Simulation. This simulation will be a great program for all ages to participate in and allow for a better understanding of what it is like to live in poverty.
What if it rains? What if it is really cold out? What if the car runs out of gas? All of these things could happen—and it does happen to people living in our community who really must live in their car.
Join me in support of Heartline and Heart House and in the fight against homelessness.
