Sleep Out

the Sleep Out has prevented homelessness 34,281 times

Each year, funds raised by the Sleep Out help nearly 2,000 local families stabilize, strengthen and thrive. This year we are celebrating the transformative power of collective compassion as 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Sleep Out.

More than ever, we come together to transform the risk of eviction into housing security. To transform hunger into hope. To transform isolation into connection.

Your gift to the Sleep Out prevents homelessness and helps deliver individualized services in six critical areas: family support, food, housing and neighborhoods, education and youth, employment, and transportation.
