In January 2018, there were 1011 people experiencing homelessness in Miami-Dade County and 914 individuals in Broward County. The fact that so many veterans, women and children suffer from homelessness in our country is devastating to witness.
For this reason, Showering Love works to remind people experiencing homelessness that they matter. We provide wrap around services and resources. Showering Love restores hope and dignity. We begin with mobile showers, which opens doors to jobs, housing, financial security and self sufficiency.
Due to the stark facts above, on Saturday, August 11, 2018, from 6pm to 6am, Showering Love will host its second Sleep Out for the Homeless Event.
This is an opportunity to experience, for one night, how people experiencing homelessness live every night. Last year, several volunteers slept on hard surfaces, got rained on and felt the uncertainty throughout the night. Due to this, many felt deeper compassion and empathy for those experiencing homelessness.
This year, the DM Cook Fund will match donations up to $5,000! Therefore, we need your help in raising funds by participating and donating!
How to get involved to help people experiencing homelessness
- Sleep out with Showering Love and raise $250+ to be sponsored.
- Sponsor a volunteer that is sleeping out with a donation of your choice.
