The Sleep Out

For 20 years – just think of it – this amazing community has helped stabilize 8,679 families through the Sleep Out Campaign. What started as one idea from a Wayzata business man, Shoebob Fisher, 20 years ago has turned into one of the longest running Sleep Out campaigns ever. Thank you, Bob, and thank you to this amazing community that over the years has “taken the baton" from Bob and made the Sleep Out campaign its own.
Investing in IOCP families is the right thing to do. It is also the fiscally smart thing to do. A county shelter stay for a family of four can cost $3,900 per month. Keeping a family in their existing home for a month costs IOCP $747. See what we mean?
Let’s take our impact to a whole new level. All of us – together – raising $2.2 million. Together we are unbeatable…Let’s do this! Join us!
Donate and help 2,000 families in our area move from survive to thrive. Thank you!
