Mark 12:31 – Jesus says Love your neighbor as yourself.’  I keep discovering there is more to this verse than I think and this is an opportunity to encounter it again.

About the Event

Believe it or not, on any given night, literally hundreds of people in Champaign County do not spend the night in their own home. Some sleep with friends. Others sleep in shelters. Some sleep in cars. And others sleep outside. The goal of C-U at Home One Winter Night is to raise awareness about those who are homeless, helping others realize that someday that could be me. C-U at Home is dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable homeless, those who are more likely to die early unless their circumstances change.

One Winter Night was held in the heart of downtown Champaign, centered around the corner of Neil St. and Main St., with over 150 people who spent the night outside in a cardboard box from 6pm-6am. We also hosted homeless educational presentations about various topics related to homelessness in the City Council Chambers from 6pm-10pm. And a very special highlight of One Winter Night 2016 was the world premiere of The Phoenix: Hope Is Rising. This is a documentary about that takes you from the birth of C-U at Home all the way up to the future of our ministry. You can find out more about the documentary and find out how you can host a screening of the film at:www.thephoenixhopeisrising.com

We are SO EXCITED for everything God has done through C-U at Home in the past year--developing our Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center, adding a new transitional home for single women, allowing us to take more than 1000 people to other communities to get the help they need through our transportation ministry that uses our 2 donated vehicles, and adding a new staff member. We have also acquired and built out a NEW location for The Phoenix with a 5 year lease. The goal this year for  C-U at Home One Winter Night is $150,000. That is more than 2/3 of our 2016 annual budget.
