Sleep-in-Your-Car Event at University of Saint Francis

The Homeless Coalition of Fort Wayne participated in the University of Saint Francis homeless & hungriness awareness campaign. The goal of the overnighting in the north-campus parking lot was to raise awareness. Following a field trip to the Rescue Mission, students participated in reading of literature by homeless authors, watching ‘Homeless to Harvard – The Liz Murray story’ and then spending a cold night in their cars, without heat.

Below are a few pictures snapped by HCFTW.
