What is it like to be homeless?

Many of us have never experienced what it is like to be homeless or to only have exactly enough food for one day.
The activities on this page will help you and your family experience what it may feel like to not have these basic resources.




Parents, we have developed a list of family activities that simulate experiences homeless individuals face on a daily basis. Use the Guided Homeless Experiences to participate in the activities that are best suited for your family.

Time for a Scavenger Hunt!

Now that you have learned about the causes and challenges of homelessness and experienced what it may feel like, go on a “scavenger hunt” with your family to locate all of Miracle Hill Ministries’ shelters. Print out the instructions and map to help you on your hunt!

If you have any questions about what you’ve learned through Backyard Missions, please call us at 864.268.4357 and ask to speak with our Volunteer Administrator.
