Illinois event to simulate homelessness

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) — Residents of a central Illinois city can glimpse what it’s like for those whose only shelter is their car while raising money for a group that supports homeless people.  
The third annual Night In A Car homelessness simulation will be held in February at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington.

The program, organized by Trinity Lutheran and Home Sweet Home Ministries — which provides services for the homeless— aims to highlight the difficulties faced by homeless people who sleep in their cars by having participants do the same for one night.

Up to 250 people are homeless on any given night in Bloomington-Normal, and some of those live in their cars.
