One Purpose, One Night

SLEEP OUT DATE: NOVEMBER 18, 2021 | 6:00 PM – 6:00 AM

 

Why Sleep Out?

Hundreds of young people come to Covenant House Michigan each year seeking safe shelter, nourishing food, clean clothing, and essential services like job training, education, healthcare, mental health counseling, and legal aid. You can support our youth on their journeys to independence.

Sleep Out in solidarity with our young people. The funds you raise help Covenant House Michigan provide 24/7 care. And the awareness you raise shines light on the youth homelessness crisis, urging us closer to a world where everyone has a safe place to sleep.

TWO WAYS TO SLEEP OUT IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUTH FACING HOMELESSNESS

We are optimistic that our Sleep Out: Executive Edition Michigan on November 18, 2021, will include opportunities for in-person participation in Detroit and Grand Rapids.As in years past, Sleep Out: Executive Edition Michigan will bring together Sleepers who commit to a fundraising goal of raising at least $5,000 to help our residents.

Sleepers also have the opportunity to participate virtually, from anywhere to raise funds for youth facing homelessness in Michigan. Remote Sleepers will be invited to participate in a live, interactive online program with Covenant House alumni, front-line staff, and fellow Sleepers from across the globe. At night, these Sleepers will give up their beds and Sleep Out in backyards, garages, porches, terraces, and floors across Michigan.

Companies participating in Sleep Out can offer employees across the state or around the world the choice to Sleep Out at a Covenant House-sponsored location or remotely. Both options provide opportunities for meaningful engagement with your team. Contact us below with any questions.
