We've accepted Covenant House’s challenge to spend a night sleeping on the street so homeless kids don’t have to.
The Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. It’s an act of solidarity with the 4.2 million young people who experience homelessness each year. It’s a decision that we can’t stay indoors while so many kids remain outside.
One night can make a difference.
As part of our Sleep Out, we are raising funds and awareness for Covenant House, a shelter for kids experiencing homelessness and trafficking. Covenant House offers these young people so much more than a safe place to sleep - they welcome each kid with absolute respect and unconditional love, and their continuum of care provides essential services to help kids transition from homelessness to independence.
Covenant House is the second-highest-rated non-profit in Louisiana (by Charity Navigator, the nation's premier charity evaluator), so you can be confident that your support will be used effectively and efficiently. They are also 74% dependent on private donations to continue their critical work. The need is stark: in the past seven years, their average daily census has grown from 45 to 185 youth per night.
Please help us help kids. Make a donation in support of our Sleep Out by clicking the “Support Us” button above.
We can’t do this without you. Thanks for your support!
