Sleep Out: Women Unite

 Thank you to all of the women who slept out on May 11th, 2017 to raise awareness and over $30,000 for the operations of our crisis shelter. Your commitment and passion to serve the homeless and trafficked youth of Atlanta is an inspiration.

 Congratulations  and a special thanks to our top fundraisers: Georgia O'Farrell, Brandy Swanson, Mary Atkinson, Karen Riddell, BJ Crabtree, Laura Torbert, Ashley Gray, Beverly Gibson, Christine Cavanaugh, Lisa Ezzard, Hannah Lawrence, Karen Carlsen, Shannon Mantovani, Molly Richey, and Suzy Schmitt.

 Thank you to Tropical Smoothie for sponsoring a delicious meal!

 

Women Change the World, One Child at a Time

For just one night...

Hundreds of women will sleep outside to show love and comfort to homeless youth. 

Women Unite is a specific call to action for women who have a little extra love in their hearts to share with kids who by no fault of their own have nowhere else to turn.  

Join us in this movement and show homeless youth that they are not alone! Let your life be touched by a young person who needs to know you care.

Impact...

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

40% of homeless people in the United States are under 18.

57% of homeless kids spend at least one day of every month without food.

46% of homeless kids left home because of physical abuse.

57,364 found hope at Covenant House last year, and over 1,000 of those were served in Atlanta, Geogia.
