    Homeless for a Night

    Register your team! The minimum fundraising requirement is $100, but we won’t stop you from exceeding that! We encourage you to challenge yourself and raise as much as you can! Put your heart and a little creativity into it and the donations will add up in no time. Homeless for a Night is about becoming more acquainted with the incredibly difficult reality that more than 500 youth in Edmonton face – homelessness. Their reality is painted with fear, confusion, hunger, hopelessness, despair, struggle, loneliness, abuse, abandonment, and trauma. While the experience for participants comes nowhere close to the reality of actually being on the streets, the event encourages people to move a little beyond their comfort zone and imagine a life with far less luxury.
