Sleep Out: Young Professionals Edition

Thank you to all of our Young Professionals who slept out this past March to raise awareness and over $66,000 for the operations of our crisis shelter.  Your commitment and passion to serve the homeless and trafficked youth of Atlanta is an inspiration.

Join us for this year's Sleep Out: YP Edition on Friday, March 24th, 2017.

For just one night...

Young leaders in eleven cities across the U.S., including Atlanta, will participate in a national movement to take a stand against teen homelessness. These young leaders will sleep outside in solidarity with suffering children of the street to show them that they are not alone. Each Sleep Out participant will raise both public awareness about the plight of homeless youth and critical funds to support the life-changing work that is being done every day by Covenant House.


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

Over 1,000 homeless and trafficked youth found hope at Covenant House Georgia last year. 


When is the event? The Sleep Out is an overnight event held on the Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) campus in West Midtown on Friday, March 24th, 2017.

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 hands 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.

Join us in the movement to help kids off the street and rebuild their lives, because one night can make a difference.
