Sleep Out: Executive Edition

Nearly 2 million kids in America will face homelessness this year.
Perhaps their greatest poverty, though, is that they are ignored and forgotten.

 Thank you to all of our Executives who slept out this past November to raise awareness and over $485,000 to support the homeless youth of Atlanta.  And a special thanks to Paul and Carol Garcia, the chair's of of our 2016 Sleep Out. Your commitment and passion to serve the homeless and trafficked youth of Atlanta is an inspiration.

 

Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of this movement with us on 
November 16th, 2017.

Every November, business leaders gather at Covenant Houses across the United States and Canada. They come together to notice these young people in need, hear their stories, and bear witness both to their struggles and their steps forward into brave new lives. Then, in a statement of solidarity and open-hearted generosity, these men and women will take to the streets with cardboard and sleeping bags while the kids who live at Covenant House will go to sleep in safe, warm beds.

Reflections from our Sleepers

"I was profoundly impacted by participating in The Sleep Out. Hearing the youth's story, the bravery, intimacy and honesty of the youth was deeply moving."

"The Sleep Out has made me aware of the very large number of homeless youth that I hadn't known slept on the streets of Atlanta every night."

"I have a greater awareness for how tough it would be to live on the street."

"After meeting with the youth and hearing their stories, seeing the numbers and experiencing sleeping outside, it clearly makes the issue very real. Seeing the facility, meeting the amazing staff and board members shows hope for a better future. Experiencing the Covenant House makes me want to be very active and participate in spreading the word to help these talented youth reach their goals!"

"This experience has heightened my awareness, inspired me and made me more grateful for God's blessings."

"It has created a greater sense of empathy for a group that I didn't realize was so heavily impacted homelessness!"
