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. 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.
Sleep Out: Montclair Community Edition will bring our community together in a sacred space. Together, we will begin an open dialogue addressing issues including racism, human trafficking, LGBTQ, gender inequality, education & employment disparities, as these issues all have a direct impact on our youth. Our hope is that Covenant House New Jersey will be a bridge to unite communities, raise awareness around the social injustices our youth have endured and be an action step towards having courageous conversations.
Sleep Out: Montclair Community Edition is a fundraiser that will support Covenant House New Jersey's programs and services. Each participant is required to fundraise. The suggested fundraising goal is $300 for students ages 12-20 and $1,000 for adult participants.
two ways to SLEEP OUT IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUTH FACING HOMELESSNESS
We are optimistic that our Sleep Out on March 4, 2022, will include opportunities for in-person participation at the Montclair Women's Club in Montclair, NJ. Remote sleepers have the opportunity to participate virtually, from anywhere, and with anyone. All Sleepers will be invited to participate in a live, interactive online program with Covenant House New Jersey alumni, front-line staff, and fellow Sleepers from across the country. At night, our Sleepers will give up their beds and Sleep Out at the Montclair Women's Club or in their backyards, garages, porches, terraces, and floors across NJ.
Companies participating in Sleep Out can offer employees across the state or around the world the choice to Sleep Out remotely. This option provides the opportunity for meaningful engagement with your team. Contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
