Our 6th annual SLEEP OUT on Thursday, November 16th will once again be a very special evening.
Last year, over 160 sleepers raised $450,000 to support our runaway, homeless, and at-risk young people. Our goal for 2017 is to recruit 170 sleepers (one for every youth & child in our care) and raise $470,000. We can’t do it without you.
In the past six years, the number of young people in our daily care has grown from 45 to 170 per night. They are among the most damaged and vulnerable youth in our community. Most are victims of physical and/or sexual abuse, domestic and/or street violence, and the resulting profound trauma that often leads to substance abuse, mental health issues, and more. The Sleep Out is our opportunity to let them know they are not alone: that we stand with them in their struggles, celebrate their courage and resiliency, and support their promise and dreams.
