Every dollar you raise as a participant in Sleep Out America goes directly to Covenant House, a non-profit organization that provides housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness across the United States, Canada, and Latin America. By joining the Sleep Out movement, you're paving the way for a young person in need to sleep in a warm, safe bed at Covenant House.
Young people can find themselves homeless for lots of reasons, from financial issues to abusive home lives. Once on the streets, kids are easy targets for violence, human trafficking, and other dangerous and devastating situations. Covenant House actively reaches out to vulnerable youth and offers them another option: shelter and safety, love and respect, and the tools to build a stable future.
You start your Sleep Out experience with a donation of $25, which helps keep the lights on and doors open at Covenant House sites across the country. But that's just the beginning.
By fundraising, you help Covenant House continue our practice of meeting each young person at their level and providing them with the services they need, whether it's food, medical treatment, counseling, legal aid, job training, or just an opportunity to be a kid without having to worry about basic necessities and safety.
