Home Sweet Home Ministries, in partnership with Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington, is hosting a “Night in a Car”. The Night in a Car experience sheds light on a hidden aspect of homelessness in our community--individuals living in their cars. The event challenges participants to do the same by spending one night in their car on February 3rd and they 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.
