Covenant House Sleep Out

You Can Help

We are challenging students to spend one night sleeping outside at their school to raise funds for our residential Crisis Program. But it’s not about pretending to be homeless. It’s about showing homeless youth that they are worthy of unconditional love and absolute respect, and proving that we care enough about them to be uncomfortable for one night; to be vulnerable so they can be safe.

Join the Sleep Out movement and make a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of homeless youth.

Covenant House Sleep Out

The Growing Issue of Homeless Youth

On any given night there are between 500 and 1,000 young people living on the streets in Vancouver. Vancouver's downtown streets are dangerous. Exploitation, drug abuse, poverty and illness are commonplace.

Many youth are re-victimized on the streets, having fled one unsafe situation only to find their circumstances are often worse. Exposed to the elements, lonely, afraid and without hope; this is the reality for our youth.
