Sleep Out: Executive Edition

About Sleep Out: Executive Edition 

More than 4 million kids in America will face homelessness this year. Perhaps their greatest poverty, though, is that they are ignored and forgotten.

On November 21, 2019, business leaders will gather at Covenant Houses across the United States, Canada and Latin America to notice these young people in need, hear their stories, & bear witness to their struggles and to their brave steps forward into new lives. In a clear statement of solidarity, these men and women took to the streets with cardboard boxes and sleeping bags while the youth at Covenant House will go to sleep in safe, warm beds.

Sleep Out: Executive Edition FAQs

Sleep Out is an educational event with a social twist. While there are some aspects of the program that are somber and contemplative, the overall feeling is enthusiastic and hopeful.

Sleep Out is a casual environment. Choose comfortable clothing that is seasonably appropriate for extended time outdoors (layers are always a good bet). You will have access to your personal belongings and a bathroom where you can change, but it's 100% acceptable to remain in one comfortable outfit during the entire event.

Safety is our first and foremost concern, both for the young people we serve and for you as our guest. We will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety at the Sleep Out. And, while the spirit of the event is to sleep outside, a sheltered, indoor area will be provided in case of extreme weather.

The Sleep Out will start at 7:00pm at Covenant House Georgia, located at 1559 Johnson Road, NW Atlanta, GA 30318. We strongly advise sleepers to use ride-sharing apps such as Uber or Lyft, as parking will be limited.

All Sleep Out participants must be registered and check-in at the door; upon doing so, you will receive a name badge that you must wear visibly for the duration of the event. Plan to arrive and check-in between 7:00 and 7:30pm. When you arrive, follow the instructions of the Covenant House staff greeters to locate the check-in area

You Should Bring:

  • One bag per person
  • Layers of clothing
  • Basic toiletries
  • Personal medications
  • Your open heart

We Provide for You:

  • A new sleeping bag
  • A piece of cardboard for support under your bag and a trash bag for insulation
  • Light bites and late night snacks
  • Continental breakfast in the morning
  • Beverages and light snacks throughout the overnight
  • Secure storage for your belongings, available to you at all times
  • Restroom facilities (indoors)

Sleep Out is a rain or shine event. Young people on the street don’t always have a place to seek refuge until they find Covenant House. On November 21, the same goes for you. Indoor space will be provided for anyone wishing to come in from the elements.
