Everyone Deserves a Safe Place to Sleep

4.2 million young people will face homelessness this year. You can help.

Give up your bed for one night to ensure that youth facing homelessness can sleep safely at Covenant House, where they are welcomed with love and respect. Young people can access safe shelter, nourishing food, clean clothing, and essential services like job training, education, healthcare, mental health counseling, and legal aid — all the tools they need to build futures free from homelessness.

Sleep Out is your chance to shine a light on the youth homelessness crisis and raise critical funds that help Covenant House provide young people with 24/7 support. The awareness and funds you raise translate to things like new sheets, computers, meals, and best-in-class care for youth overcoming homelessness. 

how it works

Sleep Out is a unique event that you can host on your own or with family, friends, or co-workers. The experience comes with opportunities to learn from experts, meaningfully advocate for an end to youth homelessness, amplify stories from people with lived experience being unstably housed, and be part of a powerful community. And Sleep Out can be tailored for groups of all ages, from adults to students; all can use our Resource Center to plan an event on their own.
