Chicago homeless spend night in bone-chilling cold

By Courtney Gousman,

It’s hard to stand outside in Chicago unprotected, even for a minutes. With wind chills hitting 30 below, just 30 minutes in the cold can lead to frostbite.

Community activist Andrew Holmes chose to once again sleep outside with the homeless, to dramatize the need for permanent affordable housing.

Holmes spent 10 hours outdoors, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., as part of his campaign to convince city leaders to spend more to help eradicate the city’s homeless problem.
