Living near the downtown area, I see homeless men & women pass through my neighborhood. And though I've never been homeless myself, I am friends with some who have been, and realize how many in our community may be only one paycheck or domestic abuse away from living on the streets.This experience will help me better understand the challenges that homeless individuals & families face on a daily basis.
Aurora is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the homeless and near homeless in the Greater Evansville, IN area. Each year, it serves over 500 individuals: men, women, children, those with disabilities, and the re-entry population.
The Homeless Experience Project is Aurora’s new fundraiser and awareness event and its purpose is to bring a greater understanding of the struggles the families and individuals face when homeless in our community. If you'd like to support Aurora, please donate to my fundraising page!
