About One Winter Night 2024

The One Winter Night Challenge provides a powerful opportunity for our community to learn about homelessness, build empathy for the people we serve, and raise funds to support our mission.

Why Participate?

C-U at Home's Pathways to Progress program is all about change!
C-U at Home works directly with individuals ready to take steps out of homelessness toward a healthy, whole, and independent future. Our Pathways to Progress plan assists clients in a 12-18 month program that works with clients to bring transformation in their lives. 
Case management  and other supportive services are provided in seven homes located throughout the community. This type of living environment promotes stability and life skills development, but it is also costly. 
Funds raised by One Winter Night help offset the expenses (about $30,000) of each client who completes the program.

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Each person has a story, and you become part of it when you give to C-U at Home! 

After leaving prison, John had no home and nowhere to turn. In desperation, he reached out to C-U at Home. 
His Pathway to Progress began with intensive case management services and support to assist him in finding stability. 
It took time, and a lot of intensive work but John made progress.  After being part of our Mid-Barrier program for several months, John was ready to move into the Advance Shelter Program.  
 John is currently employed, volunteers at a local non-profit and is studying for his CDL. 
Stories like his unfold every day at C-U at Home. 
They are made possible by generous support from caring partners in our community and through the funds raised in the One Winter Night Challenge.
