The Story

EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013

The statistics are real...

Since 2009, we've seen a staggering 48% increase in people needing help.  Just this last year, we saw a:

  • 27% increase in homeless veterans
  • 26% increase in transitional youth
  • 20% increase in families requiring shelter
  • 17% increase in women seeking assistance

Homelessness is growing, we need to act now. Your contributions help fund our program throughout the year.

Some Event Details

The event kicks off on Saturday, May 11 at 6:00 pm with a one hour rally at Living Waters Church (1808 Miller Road, Crystal Lake).  There participants will enjoy live music, a bonfire, food and compete in the shelter building contest.

After the rally is over, most participants will sleep out on the church grounds in their cardboard box "homes" or in tents. The event ends at 7:00 am the following morning as participants pack up and head home while enjoying coffee and donuts.
