Our Third Annual C-U at Home One Winter Night will be held in Downtown Champaign on Friday, February 21, 2014. Many of you have been involved with this powerful community-wide fundraising and awareness event the past two years. This event continues to serve as the main funding source for our entire organization. Your support is invaluable to the residents we serve.
If you would like to be a part of One Winter Night, there are several ways to get involved:
Business Sponsor to show your support for helping the homeless with a financial donation
Box Dweller and spend 12 hours in a cardboard box, raising funds to help us
Volunteer to help with registration, wave a sign, or deliver hot drinks
Donor to financially support our efforts to help the homeless
If you already know that you would like to be a Business Sponsor or a Box Dweller for One Winter Night, please contact us now. And please SAVE THE DATE on your calendar. February will be here before we know it!

On June 13, we FINALLY received the letter we've been waiting 11 months for. It was our determination letter from the IRS indicating that C-U at Home is now officially a tax-exempt non-profit! Three very important things this will allow us now to do are: receive the donation of real property, hire employees, and offer tax receipts for all donated items including furniture and household goods. We recently hired a professional case manager for our residents. This case manager develops individual care plans and meets with each resident on a weekly basis, tracking progress and encouraging positive momentum.
