Everyone Deserves a Safe Place to Sleep

An increasing number of young people are facing homelessness. You can help. 

Give up your bed for one night to ensure that youth facing homelessness can sleep safely at Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ). At CHNJ, young people are welcomed with love and respect. They 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 CHNJ 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. The experience you have comes with opportunities to learn from experts, meaningfully advocate for an end to youth homelessness, amplify stories from people with lived experiences being unstably housed, and be part of a unique community.

SLEEP OUT IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUTH FACING HOMELESSNESS

We are excited to welcome back our in-person participants! On Friday, March 10th, we are bringing Sleep Out: Asbury Park Community Edition, Sleep Out: Camden Community Edition, Sleep Out: Young Professional Edition, and Sleep Out: Newark Community together, along with other communities and groups from across our state!  This year's Sleep Out experience will give you the option to participate in either our live Sleep Out experience OR our virtual program. Remote Sleepers will be invited to participate in the live, interactive online program with Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ) alumni, front-line staff, and fellow Sleepers from across the state. At night, our Sleepers will give up their beds and Sleep Out at a CHNJ-based location or in their own backyards, garages, porches, terraces, and floors across New Jersey.

Sleep Out: Covenant House New Jersey Community Edition is a fundraiser that will support CHNJ's programs and services. Each participant is required to fundraise. The suggested fundraising goal is $1,500 for adult participants and $300 for students ages 12-21.
