Why Sleep Out?
More than 2,500 young people come to Covenant House NJ each year seeking safe shelter, nourishing food, clean clothing, and essential services like job training, education, healthcare, mental health counseling, and legal aid. Sleep Out is a way to support our youth on their journey to independence. Sleep Out is a fundraising event that is crucial to raise a substantial amount of the funding we use to provide safe housing, food, clothing, and other critical resources for our young people. And the awareness you raise shines a light on the youth homelessness crisis, urging us closer to a world where everyone has a safe place to sleep.
This year’s Sleep Out focus will be how CHNJ cares for our pregnant and parenting youth. We offer specialized housing and programs at our Raphael’s Life House site in Elizabeth and our Atlantic City shelter. Facing and experiencing homelessness is traumatic enough–to do so with little ones to care for can be extra challenging. Services in this area help our parents develop the skills and resources they need to be successful and provide the support needed for their families. We will introduce you to young women who have been impacted directly by our programs which are so crucial to our moms and babies.
