GET HELP - Are you a young person in need of help?

While 2020 was a year we will never forget, our commitment to serve young people overcoming homelessness never wavered. Our doors remained open during the pandemic for the thousands of kids who needed us most. 2021 provides us with the opportunity to serve more youth and to welcome our Covenant House community home. Please join us for a Sleep Out and help us to change lives!

Sleep on the street for one night so New Jersey youth facing homelessness don’t have to. These young people — our young people — have been the stars of Sleep Out since the beginning. They welcomed communities into their houses, shared their stories, and built bridges of connection and understanding between communities of all kinds. With each dream they shared, they reminded us that they are more than their pasts: they are the future.

The funds raised through Sleep Out are a lifeline for youth overcoming homelessness. And the movement includes executives, companies, women, students, young professionals, influencers, and individuals from across the state. Every participant sends a clear message to our youth that they are not alone.

Become a champion for our youth today by participating in one of our upcoming Sleep Outs. Choose which Sleep Out experience is best for you: virtual or in-person.

Sleep Out

How It Works

This year we are offering our participants the choice to participate in a Sleep Out in-person or virtually. Once registered on our fundraising website, our Sleep Out team will be available to you every step of the way to ensure you meet your fundraising goals and have the most impactful experience possible. We will provide you with a personal website that you can customize and send out to your family, friends, and community and ask them to support your efforts and Sleep Out. 

The night of the Sleep Out, you will join us virtually or in-person, for an engaging, interactive experience where you will have the opportunity to meet some of our young people and staff. If in-person, you will join us at the shelter and if virtual, our program will be live-streamed so you are able to participate with all of the sleepers! Remember, Sleep Out is about much more than an uncomfortable night’s sleep. The Covenant House team will provide you with activities, stories, and other ways to plan a safe, purposeful, and impactful experience from wherever you are.

After the program, both in-person and virtual participants will give up their bed and sleep outside. If virtual, we suggest you sleep out on your porch, garage, backyard, or even your couch, similar to where our kids sleep when they are alone on the streets. 

The next morning we will gather together virtually or in-person for a time of reflection on our experience.
