Sleep Out

spark hope through the sleep out

The Sleep Out is our community’s warmest-hearted cold weather tradition. For 23 years, thousands of caring kids and community members have joined this movement to sleep in boxes, tents and cars (or donate to those who do) to raise awareness and funds to prevent homelessness.

The funds we raise through the Sleep Out campaign help us deliver individualized services (in the areas of family support, food, housing and neighborhoods, education and youth, employment, and transportation) that help nearly 2,000 local families each year stabilize, strengthen and thrive.
