Event description

Description

“Homeless for a Night” will be about becoming more acquainted with the incredibly difficult reality that over 1,500 people in Calvert County face – homelessness. Their realities are filled with fear, confusion, hunger, hopelessness, despair, and trauma – a reality that many of us probably haven’t experienced.

While the experience for participants will come nowhere close to the reality of actually being on the streets, the event will encourage people to move a little beyond their comfort zone and imagine a life as a homeless individual.

For one night we will challenge our participants to go without the comforts of their everyday lives and experience a small taste of what every night is like for over 1,500 people in Calvert County.

Packing list
