The event challenges participants to do the same by spending ONE night in their car on February 3rd. We are challenging participants to raise $1,000 per car.


Night in a Car is a unique opportunity to face the reality of homelessness first-hand while making an impact on the programs and services Home Sweet Home Ministries provides. Take the challenge and sign up today!
