Since 2006 the youth of LCC have participated in the Homeless Awareness Sleep-Out (HASO). They construct outdoor “homes” made out of tarps and cardboard boxes and literally sleep out on the front steps of LCC – overnight, all night. Every year in mid-January, in the snow, sleet, rain, and/or zero degree temperatures, they collect (essentially by “pan-handling”) money to donate back to The Homeless Stand-Down, Family Promise, Y-Haven, and the Northeast Coalition for the Homeless.
Over $35,000 has been raised since the program first began.
