Sleep Out

Spend one evening getting to know some of the youth whose lives will be better because of your work - and spend the rest of the night sleeping on the street in their place.

When you Sleep Out - it means homeless youth don’t have to. Young people are changed by every interaction with someone who genuinely cares for them. The Sleep Out offers every participant the chance to be someone who cares. All the funds you raise are put to work immediately - providing food, clothing, medical & behavioral healthcare, individual & family counseling, job readiness training & placement, educational support, life skills development, and more.
