Night with the Homeless 2013
A team for NEW LIFE EVANGELISTIC CENTER INC
"Night with the Homeless 2013" a team that will experience a taste of homelessness by spending the night outside to raise awareness & funds.
The Night with the Homeless 2013 is an educational event to teach the community about the plight of the homeless by direct interaction. This event also presents participants with opportunities to get involved in helping the homeless. Participants will actually experience a taste of homelessness by spending the night while in a safe environment, providing a whole new level of understanding and compassion for our fellow citizens who face this trial every day. The best we can do for those who are less fortunate is to speak out for them, to remind the rest of the world that they exist–that they are human beings who deserved better and that their pain is real.
In addition to experiencing homelessness at the Night with the Homeless 2013, participants will help the homeless by getting sponsored for the event. All proceeds will help fund job training programs, upgrades to our shelter at 1411 Locust Street, and projects to bring awareness to homelessness.
