Oakland Spring Sleep Out

One Purpose, One Night
SLEEP OUT DATE: 03/25/2022 | 8:00 pm - 7:00 am
There are over 3,500 young people without a safe place to sleep every night in the Bay Area. Each of them have a story, a dream, and a future - one that they can build with the support and care from Covenant House California.
Sleep Out participants advocate for those futures. Our community of young professionals, companies, executives, influencers, families, and individuals give up their bed for one night to ensure that young people overcoming homelessness can sleep safely at Covenant House California.
The Sleep Out is not about impersonating homelessness. We Sleep Out to show our solidarity with those who are — and to let the world know about the ever-growing population of young people who face homelessness and human trafficking.
The Sleep Out unites families, friends, and colleagues in the fight to end youth homelessness across California. You can Sleep Out by yourself or get your friends, family, and co-workers involved and register as part of a team. When you register, you will create a personal fundraising page that you can customize and share with your network so they can donate directly to your page. During the event, Sleepers will dive deeper into our mission, hear from our alumni and front-line staff about the impact of your efforts, and engage in meaningful conversations with each other.
We are thrilled to host an in-person Spring Sleep Out this year. If need be, and in alignment with the current state of COVID and our visitation protocol, we will postpone the event, and will let all Sleepers know a month prior to March 25th.
We ask all Sleepers to make a good faith effort in hitting the $1,000 fundraising goal. With that being said, Sleepers must raise a minimum of $250 in order to attend the in-person event. Top Sleepers & Fundraising Teams to be awarded the night of!
There’s more to Sleep Out than a night without a mattress. 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 and funds 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.
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.
