Sleep Out

Sleep Out in solidarity with homeless youth!

Sleep Out participants commit to sleeping outside for just one night, standing in solidarity with the more than 2,000,000 young people across the country who will experience homelessness this year. The Sleep Out has become a national movement to end youth homelessness in the United States, while raising money, that goes directly to getting kids off the streets.

 

Sleep Out: Young Professional Edition March 9, 2018  Newark NJ

The Sleep Out: Young Professional Edition aims to motivate hundreds of young professionals to raise public awaremenss and critical funds to support the life-changing work being done for homeless youth at Covenant House. 

Last year, 100 young professionals from New Jersey made good on a promise: to spend one night sleeping on the pavement near Newark's Covenant House, in cardboard boxes and sleeping bags. Through their own independent efforts, along with some generous dollar-for-dollar match campaigns, this group of young professionals provided Covenant House New Jersey with more than $118,000 to support our kids througout the next year!

Sleep Out: Women Unite │ April 20, 2018 (Atlantic City, NJ)│ April 27, 2018 (Newark, NJ)

On April 20th & April 27th, women will sleep on the street to send the clear message to homeless youth that they are not alone.  Together, they raised over $255,000 for Covenant House New Jersey! Women Unite is a specific call to action for women who have a little extra love in their hearts to share with kids who by no fault of their own have nowhere else to turn. They find hope at Covenant House. By sleeping out, these brave women have helped our kids find hope, too.
