2015 Young Professionals Sleep Out

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

For just one night... On March 20th young leaders in five cities across the U.S. will sleep outside in solidarity with homeless youth to show them that they are not alone. To join this movement, visit www.atlanta.ypsleepout.org to register today! Impact: Nearly 2 million kids in America will face homelessness this year. Perhaps their greatest poverty, though, is that they are ignored and forgotten. 1,143 homeless and trafficked youth found hope at Covenant House Georgia last year. FAQs: When is the event? The Sleep Out is an overnight event taking place from 6:00 pm on Friday, March 20th to 6:30 am on Saturday, March 21st. It will be held on the Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) campus in West Midtown. Will I be safe? CHGA is a gated campus and there will be ample staff and security to supervise the evening. What should I bring? CHGA will provide sleepers with hygiene kits similar to what our Outreach Team hand out to youth on the streets. We will also provide cardboard boxes and sleeping bags – feel free to bring your own and other items you may find necessary such as a pillow, medications and extra layers to keep warm. How much do I need to raise? We hope you will raise awareness by sending at least 5 communications to your contacts, and suggest that you try to raise $1,500 in support of homeless youth. We provide a personal webpage and all the tools and resources you need to reach your goal. For additional information, please reach out to Kaylah Walker at kwalker@covenanthouse.org or 404-589-0899.
