What is Sleep Out America?
Sleep Out America is an opportunity to offer solidarity and support to the ever-growing population of youth facing homelessness in America.
On November 22, 2019, across the country, people of all ages and backgrounds will give up the warmth of their beds and the comfort of their homes to sleep outside, just like thousands of kids with nowhere else to go do every night.
“You’re not alone. We know you’re out there, and we want to help.”
We’re not pretending we’re homeless. We Sleep Out to show support for those who are. For one night, we won’t stay indoors while so many remain outside.
But there’s more to Sleep Out America than a night without a mattress.
Leading up to the Sleep Out, you will raise money that will help Covenant House give kids and teenagers without homes the help they need to become independent adults. If you’ve never fundraised before, don’t worry. We’ll support you every step of the way with an easy-to-use fundraising web page, online tools, and personalized coaching from our staff.
A Memorable Experience for Families & Students
Sleep Out America is an engaging way for young people to learn about the hardships that people their own age face, and take an active role in giving their solidarity and support. We’ll provide suggestions for family-friendly activities to do leading up to and during your Sleep Out to make it a fun and meaningful event for everyone involved.
