One Winter Night

What is One Winter Night?

One Winter Night is an annual event that provides a powerful opportunity for our community to learn about homelessness, raise awareness for our clients, and experience a bit of what it might be like to be outside, overnight, in the coldest part of Central Illinois Winter.

Participants commit to spending 12 hours outside in a carboard box on the first Friday in February. Box dwellers come from all walks of life: local government leaders, police officers, pastors, business leaders, students, grandmas and grandpas, moms and dads. Each box dweller is committed to raising at least $1,000 to help C-U at Home continue doing all we do to help our community throughout the year.

You can get involved with us by donating or signing up to be a box dweller, business sponsor or volunteer beginning in November!
