For one of our events in our senior seminar group project we chose to host a sleep out to help both students and community members understand that it really is only circumstance that separates us from the homeless. The sleep out symbolizes how those who can’t afford a roof over their heads got to bed every night.
Also donations will be accepted at this event as well as directions to participate in our subsequent events relating to the same topic. By doing this we hope to eventually raise awareness for the growing population of the homelessness in Wicomico County and the whole Eastern Shore. We partnered with the Village of Hope to help reach a bigger audience and to also give them a voice here on the Salisbury University campus.
