For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat;
I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink;
I was a stranger and you took Me in. --Matthew 25:35
We are so excited to be selected as an official Charity Partner for the 2017 Illinois Marathon. So, what exactly does that mean?
C-U at Home is building a team of walkers and runners to participate in any and all of the walk/run events that are a part of marathon weekend. You DO NOT have to be a runner to be part of the C-U at Home Marathon team. Here are a few ways that you can be a part of supporting our ministry through the Illinois Marathon:
We encourage everyone who becomes a Team C-U at Home fundraiser to set a fundraising goal of at least $100. Our 2017 Marathon goal for C-U at Home is to raise at least $10,000.

Our C-U at Home full-length documentary continues to provide a powerful platform to share about the issues related to homelessness. The film chronicles our story from conception to birth to today.
It's our hope to show this film in many different venues over the following months including churches, schools, teams, civic organizations, and theatres. It has already won national and international awards at various film festivals. If you are interested in attending or hosting a screening of The Phoenix: Hope Is Rising, please contact us and we will get a date on the calendar.
DVD's are available for purchase at The Phoenix for $20, with $10 of that purchase going directly to benefit our ministry. You can follow our documentary journey on facebook by searching #CUatHomeDoc.

The Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center is the centerpiece of our ministry, bringing our friends without an address together with our friends from the community. We are open from noon-5pm, every Tuesday-Friday, and we welcome you to join us.
Located at 34 E. Green Street in Champaign, The Phoenix is a casual, welcoming space with a living room, computers, board games, musical instruments, and most importantly, companionship. We invite you to join us this week. You're sure to make new friends while you lean more about the challenges and victories facing those who don't have a bed to sleep in tonight.
We depend on friends from the community just like you to be with us each time we are open and to help create a warm, inviting environment. Please take a moment to sign up for a shift now.
