On November 17, 2016, local business executives will sleep on the streets of Philadelphia to send a clear message to area homeless youth that they are not alone. Nearly 2 million kids in America will face homelessness this year. Covenant House exists to provide these young people with safe shelter and wrap-around social services including education and job training so they can move forward to an adulthood free of violence, poverty, and the threat of homelessness. Covenant House helped almost 2,500 Philadelphia area youth this year alone!
You can make a big difference for homeless kids.
Sign up to Sleep Out with us. Fundraise for Covenant House to keep the lights on and the doors open for all of the kids who need help. Then, spend one evening getting to know some of the kids whose lives will be better because of your work - and spend the rest of the night sleeping on the street in their place. We are looking for executives from any size company who are willing to commit to help raise funds for area homeless youth. Companies signed up as of 9/27/16 include CPM Property Management, Toll Brothers, My Alarm Center, B Philly, Canada Dry, CHOP ED, Chick-fil-A and more!
