The Sleep Out is our community’s annual eight-week series of events and experiences to raise awareness and $3 million to prevent homelessness and create opportunities for everyone in our community to stabilize, strengthen and thrive.
Over the years, the community has helped prevent homelessness 34,912 times through rent assists. The Sleep Out is how our community has celebrated and tapped into the power of collective compassion.
Are you ready to make a difference?
Along with organizing a Sleep Out (or Sleep In) or donating to our campaign, there are other opportunities to help nearly 2,000 local families at risk of homelessness.
Support local businesses and help prevent homelessness during this unique Sleep Out event. Shop and dine with generous partners who donate a portion of their sales to Interfaith. Help reach the $3 million Sleep Out goal while running regular holiday errands. Click here for a complete list of participating businesses!
Poverty, affordable housing and mental illness are often interconnected. Attend a free Zoom conversation, “Housing, Homelessness & Mental Health,” to explore the impact of housing instability and homelessness on mental health. Hear from an expert guest presenter and Interfaith staff, and learn how you can be part of the solution as our community is poised to take action. Click here to learn more and RSVP.
