No Fixed Address to get underway today at Pen Centre

Niagara residents will experience what it is like to be homeless during an event today and tomorrow at the Pen Centre.

No Fixed Address raises awareness and funds for the YWCA to help solve the rising problem of hidden homelessness.

Starting today and for the next 24 hours volunteers will take part in a  Live In Your Car A Thon, that will give them a taste of what its like to call your car home.

Participants will experience how little room a car has to sleep in, what a soup kitchen diet looks like and how difficult it is to find a restroom when they need it.
