While the past two years were years 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. This year 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!
The funds raised by Sleepers and Sponsors through Sleep Out are a lifeline for youth overcoming homelessness. The movement includes executives, professionals,students, influencers, and individuals from across the state. Every participant sends a clear message to our youth that they are not alone.
What is Sleep Out? Sleep Out is a transformative overnight experience, similar to a 5K walk/run for a cause, where our youth, partners, volunteers, and staff all come together in solidarity, either virtually or in-person. The night includes a series of impactful programs and workshops, then everyone hunkers down and sleeps outside overnight. In the morning there is a time for reflection with everyone that is always very moving.

Register for your Sleep Out: either virtually or in-person on our easy-to use fundraising website or contact us to register for you.
Promote your Sleep Out: to spread the word to co-workers, family, and friends to support you; our Sleep Out team will be available to you every step of the way with marketing tips to ensure you meet your fundraising goals and have the most impactful experience possible.
Sleep Outside: on the night of the event, you will join us virtually or in-person depending on the Sleep Out, for an engaging, interactive experience where you will have the opportunity to meet some of our young people and staff. 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. As a virtual event, 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.
Morning Reflection: the next morning we will gather together virtually for a time of reflection on our experience. Everyone is changed.
