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 journeys to independence.
Sleep Out in solidarity with our young people. The funds you raise help Covenant House NJ provide 24/7 care. 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.
TWO WAYS TO SLEEP OUT IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUTH FACING HOMELESSNESS
We are cautiously optimistic that our Sleep Out on November 12, 2021, will include an opportunity for in-person participation in Atlantic City. Details will be shared as they become available. Sleepers need to be over the age of 18 to participate unless attending with a parent or guardian.
Sleepers also have the opportunity to participate virtually, from anywhere, and with anyone (a great option for families!). Remote Sleepers will be invited to participate in a live, interactive online program with Covenant House NJ alumni, front-line staff, and fellow Sleepers from across the country. At night, these Sleepers will give up their beds and Sleep Out in backyards, garages, porches, terraces, and floors across NJ.
Companies participating in Sleep Out can offer employees across the state, or in other locations, the choice to Sleep Out at a Covenant House-sponsored location or remotely. Both options provide opportunities for meaningful engagement with your team. Contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
