I am participating in the 48 Hours in the Life Experience because I want to have a better understanding of the environment of someone who is experiencing homelessness in Evansville. Having a foundation with a primary focus on affordable housing and those individuals who fall into the extremely low, very low, and low income households, it will allow me to have a different viewpoint of the struggles one has navigating daily life.
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!
