One Purpose, One Night
sleep out date: november 18, 2021 | 7:00 pm - 7:00 am
There are over 3,500 young people without a safe place to sleep every night in the East Bay of California. Tragically, CHC is the only provider of shelter beds in the entire East Bay and we must do more. Those young people come to Covenant House California in Oakland each year seeking safe shelter, nourishing food, clean clothing, and essential services like job training, education, healthcare, mental health counseling, and legal aid. By Sleeping Out in solidarity with our young people, you are supporting their journeys to independence.
100% of the money raised will be directly allocated to our services and help Covenant House California continue to provide 24/7 care. And, the awareness you raise helps us provide a better future for youth overcoming homelessness, urging us closer to a world where everyone has a safe place to sleep. Together, we will end youth homelessness across California.
TWO WAYS TO SLEEP OUT IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUTH FACING HOMELESSNESS
We are optimistic that our Sleep Out on November 18, 2021 will include opportunities for in-person participation in Oakland. Details will be shared as they become available.
If you prefer to participate from the safety of your home, you will be able to join the live, interactive online program with CHC alumni, front-line staff, and fellow Sleepers from across California. At night, these Sleepers will join us by giving up their beds and Sleeping Out in backyards, garages, porches, terraces, and floors across CA.
Companies are making a big difference in the youth homelessness crisis by becoming sponsors, making in-kind donations and matching gifts, and rallying teams of employees to Sleep Out. 100% of every dollar, including corporate donations, goes directly to our services.
