Wilfrid Laurier University
Welcome to the 5 Days for the Homeless 2016 campaign! 5 Days for the Homeless is a campaign where students are helping other students who are at risk. As a campaign, we work hard to increase awareness of homelessness and abolish the negative stigmas that those experiencing homelessness face each and every day. Our campaign encourages people to rethink homelessness and realize that homelessness can happen to anyone.
5 Days for the Homeless has a vision to create a society where all individuals who experience homelessness can find opportunities to rebuild their lives and be successful. In addition to raising awareness, our campaign also fundraises donations that go to two local shelters. These shelters have multi-dimensional rehabilitation programs that focus on mental health, employment, adequate housing and more.
We are so excited for you to learn about our campaign here at Wilfrid Laurier University!
