The Covenant House Sleep Out

Sleep Out is an international movement of individuals who spend one night sleeping on the street so youth facing homelessness don't have to.

UPDATE: While the country closes under threat of coronavirus, Covenant House remains open for young people 24/7. Join our Virtual Sleep Out on April 24 and help keep youth facing homelessness safe and healthy.


Sleep Out makes a meaningful impact.

Participants raise funds and awareness for Covenant House, a network of shelters that provides safety and support to young people overcoming homelessness in more than 30 cities across the United States, Canada, and Latin America.


Sleep Out is an act of solidarity.

Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. It’s a demonstration to young people — who are so often ignored — that they are not alone. When you Sleep Out, you decide that you can’t stay indoors while so many kids remain outside.


Sleep Out builds community.

Whether you join a Sleep Out at a Covenant House site, Sleep Out on your own, or start a Sleep Out with your friends and family, colleagues or neighbors, you inspire entire communities to step up and protect kids.
