No Fixed Address @ Pen Centre
Aug 11 all-day

No Fixed Address is an event experience to raise awareness and funds to help solve the rising problem of hidden homelessness, to educate about the reasons behind those who are calling their car “home”, and to impact individuals through an experience that will inspire them to be the voice of change for the “hidden homeless”.

No Fixed Address is a 24 hour Live-In-Your-Car-A-Thon. Like a marathon or a walk-a-thon, participants will gather sponsorships from friends and family and take part in an event that gives them a taste of what it is like to have to live in their car.

Over the course of 24 hours participants will experience just how little room a car has when you sleep in it, what a soup kitchen diet looks like and how difficult it is to find a private rest room when you most need it. They will be stretched and challenged. They will want to laugh, cry and reflect. They will leave forever changed.

This event is hosted by YWCA Niagara Region.
