United We Sleep, This year it’s VIRTUAL!
For one night in September, we come together with fellow community members in learning about the level of poverty that exists and exploring pathways to success in the greater Nashua community. We will learn from local experts as we participated in a unique, experience of a sleep out in a cardboard box. This year’s event is remote, with the programming being done via zoom and the experience being at home. Nevertheless, we will all learn, together, about the causes and cures for homelessness in our community.
