On November 21st we are challenging C-suite executives, business owners, leaders within their organization to Sleep Out for one night in solidarity with the youth we serve here at Covenant House. With only a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard, participants will get a small glimpse of what it is like to “sleep” on the street.
“Sleepers” will also interact with some of our youth currently staying with us and those who have stayed with us in the past. They will hear their personal stories of how they found their way to our doors and how their lives have changed since. Youth will also have the opportunity to ask the participants why they support Covenant House and why they are Sleeping Out.
Covenant Houses throughout the United States and Canada will host Sleep Out events this fall to raise critical funds and awareness to the issue of youth homelessness. Be sure to join in the discussion on Social Media using the hash tag #CHSleepOut.
