2018 Sleep Out: Executive Edition

Thu, Nov 15, 2018
Covenant House Michigan - Detroit
2959 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Detroit, MI 48208

Sleep on the street so homeless kids don’t have to.

Nearly 2 million kids in America will face homelessness this year.

Covenant House exists to provide these young people with safe shelter and wrap-around social services including education and job training so they can move forward to an adulthood free of violence, poverty, and the threat of homelessness.

You can make a big difference for homeless kids.

Sign up to Sleep Out with us. Fundraise for Covenant House Michigan to keep the lights on and the doors open for all of the kids who need help. Then, spend one evening getting to know some of the kids whose lives will be better because of your work – and spend the rest of the night sleeping on the street in their place.

Sleep Out for one night so a homeless kid can have a better life.

2018 Vigil

Thu, Nov 15, 2018 @ 5:30pm
Beacon Park
1901 Grand River Ave
Detroit, Michigan 48226

At Covenant House Michigan, we understand that providing shelter, food, and basic needs to homeless youth is only part of the solution. These young people also have a right to safety, guidance, education and, most importantly, to be loved, because no young person deserves to be homeless. We believe that it is our responsibility as a community to ensure that every homeless and trafficked young person has an opportunity to pursue their dream.

The week of November 10 – 18, 2018 is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, with November 15 specifically designated to bring attention to homeless youth. For the past several years, Covenant House Michigan has held our Youth Homelessness Candlelight Vigil on our campus prior to our Sleep Out: Executive Edition overnight event. This event has outgrown our small campus space due to the increasing number of participants.

We are excited to partner with DTE Energy Beacon Park Foundation to have our Youth Homelessness Candlelight Vigil at Beacon Park in the early evening of November 15, 2018. We will begin to gather at 5:30 p.m. with the program starting at 6:00 p.m.

Come to light a candle and a say a prayer for those youth who still need our help.
