Experience what it's like to be homeless in the city of Springfield for a night. Join us for this unique, educational fund raising event. Participants will simulate the lives of homeless men and women in Springfield. Within the only day shelter in the city (VCHC), they will attempt to break the cycle themselves using resources available to the homeless in Springfield.
After the simulation, a debriefing session and worship, they will attempt to sleep outside in a safe gated area. This 12 hour long event will relate many of the obstacles people face when experiencing life on the streets. Our hope is participants walk away with a deeper understanding of how hard it is to be homeless. They will also raise money for the only day shelter in Springfield by gathering hourly sponsors. We hope you decide to join us for this special event in April.
