The Covenant House Sleep Out

is an international movement of individuals who accept the challenge to sleep outside for one night so that homeless kids don't have to. 

Sleep Out makes a meaningful impact.

Sleep Out participants commit to raising funds and awareness for Covenant House, a network of shelters that provides safety and support to homeless young people in more than 30 cities across the United States, Canada, and Latin America. Money raised by Sleep Out goes directly to getting - and keeping - kids off the streets.

Sleep Out is an act of solidarity.

Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. It’s a demonstration to homeless young people that you care - deciding that you can’t stay indoors while so many kids remain outside.

Sleep Out builds community.

Whether you join a Sleep Out at a Covenant House site, Sleep Out on your own, or start a Sleep Out with your friends and family, colleagues or neighbors, you're shining a light on the injustice of youth homelessness and inspiring entire communities to step up and protect kids.
