On May 4, 2017, we are challenging mothers to spend one night sleeping on the street, with just a sleeping bag and piece of cardboard. But it's not about pretending to be homeless. It's about showing a group of young people that they are worthy of unconditional love and absolute respect.
Sleep Out: Mothers Edition will raise funds to support our Street Outreach program. Travelling on foot, Outreach Workers are often the "face" of Covenant House. They offer food, counselling, minor medical attention. They take great care to build relationships with youth, and encourage them to come to our Crisis Program or Drop-In Centre.
Mothers - you have the power to change the world, one youth at a time! Will you stand with us in support of homeless youth? Join us and make an immediate and lasting impact on the homeless young people who receive support from Covenant House Vancouver.
