Dean's Story

When the rain hit, he sought refuge under a bridge. "I remember shivering all night. I was terribly under dressed."

One Night Count

"It is one thing to count homeless people. It is another to bring lifesaving supplies and love to each of them," shares Jeff Lilley.

On January 23, volunteers counted 3,772 homeless neighbors on the street — 21% increase!

The annual One Night Count is a call to action for us, our churches, and residents of this city. Your gift of $14.92 delivers a Winter Rescue Kit for a homeless person!
