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 15, 2018, 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 will take to the streets with cardboard boxes and sleeping bags while the youth at Covenant House will go to sleep in safe, warm beds.

Will you join them?


 How to Register for Sleep Out: Executive Edition

Fundraise for Covenant House to keep the lights on and the doors open for kids in need. Then, spend an evening getting to know some of the young people whose lives will be better because of your efforts on their behalf - and spend the rest of the night sleeping outside in their place.

Sleep Out: Executive Edition FAQs

WHAT IS THE MOOD OF THE SLEEP OUT?
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.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
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.

WILL I BE SAFE?
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.

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

CHECK-IN
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 7:45pm. 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

WEATHER
Sleep Out is a rain or shine event. Kids on the street don’t always have a place to seek refuge until they find Covenant House. On November 15, the same goes for you. Indoor space will be provided for anyone wishing to come in from the elements.
