Every fall, sometime between mid-September and mid-October, we hold the Festival of Shelters. For 7 nights, we camp out in downtown Winston-Salem to show solidarity with our city’s homeless community. During the days, we reach out, learn where our efforts are needed, speak with passers-by, and hold informational gatherings for the public.
*Note: Due to a crazy year with lead abatement in the AP house, we feel that we are not going to be able to hold the Festival of Shelters in 2018. This was a hard decision for us, but we hope that taking this time off will refresh us and ready us for the future of this event.
