 Asbury Church is located at 1050 East Ave., Rochester, NY.

Grab some friends, get some sponsors, and experience RAIHN Car City!

Car City gives the community an opportunity to learn about family homelessness in a meaningful, hands-on way by sleeping overnight in their cars.  Similar to the idea of a walk-a-thon, participants in Car City raise a registration fee plus pledges to benefit the Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (RAIHN).   “Virtual” participants (raise funds and attend the event, but sleep at home) are also welcome!

Help us reach our goal of $25,000 by registering and raising funds or donating today!

Register as an individual or as part of a team. Registration fee = $30 adult/$15 youth (age 12 - 18). Groups, families and individuals are encouraged to register, raise funds and attend the evening's events.  Minimum one adult chaperone (age 21+) per seven participants age 18 or younger required.   Raise a minimum of $50 and earn a Car City T-Shirt!


Since 2012 Michele Ashlee has found herself impassioned with the lens. she lends her documentarty style photography hopes to bringing awareness to the ever growing societal, economical and political issues that those in our marginalized communities face every single day. Her work is just as much of an act of love as it is solidarity for those who remain under scrupulous critcism.

Prizes will be awarded to the top youth and adult fundraisers.

On any given night, 100 families are homeless in Rochester, many staying in shelters, motels, with friends, and sometimes in their cars.  The Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network is a not-for-profit, interfaith, culturally-competent organization of faith communities that helps homeless families achieve sustainable independence by supporting them with tailored services including shelter, food, personalized case management, and a diverse network of caring volunteers.

Your dollars will help our staff provide:  bus tickets for job and apartment searches; assistance with landlord relationships; school and job uniforms; diapers, clothing and toiletry items; connections to vocational training programs, GED and college classes; household cleaning supplies for new apartment renters; gas cards; parenting, nutritional, and financial information through life skills workshops; moving help and access to furniture and household goods; access to health care and legal resources; referrals to other social service agencies; and…

…a place where families can stay together and return home.
