Cardboard City 2023

Join us as we gather for a presentation on homelessness in our community, hear personal stories of overcoming homelessness, and how our organizations work to help those struggling. Listen to some good music, play outdoor games and enjoy the connection of our community making a difference to serve those in need.

Unfortunately, many communities including ours have seen an unprecedented increase in homelessness due to after effects of the pandemic, a lack of affordable and accessible housing, and closing of businesses affecting people’s jobs and childcare. This also results on our average length of stay increasing for our families. Homelessness is an issue that is caused by poverty, broken family relationships and multiple circumstances. Everyone’s story is unique.

Sleep in a cardboard box, pitch a tent, or sleep in your car to bring awareness to homelessness, or you may join us for the presentation and choose not to stay overnight.

The minimum pledge is only $20 and every single dollar helps us serve those in need. Hope House, The Haven, and Habitat for Humanity provide shelter and resources to assist those experiencing homelessness in our community. The partnership between these three non-profit organizations means that those most in need in our community are able to get the help they need.
