Each fall we invite community leaders to sleep outside at Promise House with only cardboard and a sleeping bag. Each sleeper commits to raise at least $5,000 through their social network – increasing both awareness and funds for the homeless youth we serve.
Sleepers will spend the night in the Promise House parking lot learning about the issues that homeless youth face and what the community can do to help youth in crisis. Promise House provides sleeping bags and cardboard, but unlike those experiencing real homelessness, sleepers will have access to restrooms, on-site security, food and beverages.
While we could never replicate the experience of a young person on the streets, this event does provide participants a chance to learn, firsthand, about some of the challenges they face. It provides a deep connection to our mission and an incredible opportunity to educate the community about youth homelessness.
