What is
Cardboard Box City?


CBC is an important advocacy and awareness event. Our goal is to better understand the many layers of family homelessness and how we can affect change in the South Bay.


Most of us can't imagine what it would be like to lose our homes and have to sleep in our cars, on the streets, or to rely on friends and family for refuge. However, sleeping in a cardboard box is a reality for many in our community, and when children are involved it is especially heartbreaking. 


Cardboard Box City raises money and awareness for the life-changing program, Family Promise of the South Bay.  The event is open to all ages and affiliations. We encourage service organizations and youth groups to participate as a learning experience and service project.  
Participants build their shelter from materials we provide.

All activities and entertainment are geared for individuals, families, and youth. This includes live music, dinner, games, raffle, prizes, and breakfast in the morning!
