WELCOME TO NIGHT IN A CAR 2023!

Home Sweet Home is thrilled that you could join us. Please see below for materials that will hopefully keep you active and engaged as you spend a night in your car. As you go along, if you come across something that you want to discuss further or simply have a question, please reach out to any HSHM staff on site or post a question to our NIAC Facebook group.
