Annual Candlelight Vigil Against Youth Homelessness

National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week takes place each year on the week before Thanksgiving. Join us on November 16 for a candlelight vigil as we raise awareness of youth homelessness and light candles of hope for the thousands of youth who have no place to call home.

Make sure to bundle up because this year’s vigil will be held entirely outside. Together, we’ll get a glimpse of the hardships homeless young people go through as they face inclement weather in November.

We’ll pray, light candles, recite the Children’s Bill of Rights and hear a few words from formerly homeless young people as we kick off the 2017 Sleep Out: Executive Edition where close to a hundred business leaders will sleep out on our campus.
