Save the Date- 24 in Your Car

By Jen Harp

Save the date! May 18 & 19, 2013

Did you know that tonight nearly 640,000 people will be homeless? Nearly 37% of them are people in families and up to 59% of homeless people live in their cars! Those numbers are surprising and staggering. Something has to be done to help these families get the help they need to rebuild their lives! That’s why we’ll be hosting the 24 In Your Car event-experience again this year. This 24-hour-live-in-your-car-a-thon is designed to bring awareness to the issues of homelessness, and funding to support the programs helping homeless women and children at Shepherd’s Gate—where the cycles of abuse, addiction, and poverty that lead to homelessness, are broken. This incredible event is open to anyone and everyone! For more information and to sign up visit:
