Sleep Out

Sleep Out in solidarity with homeless youth!

Sleep Out participants commit to sleeping outside for just one night, standing in solidarity with the more than 2,000,000 young people across the country who will experience homelessness this year. The Sleep Out has become a national movement to end youth homelessness in the United States, while raising money, that goes directly to getting kids off the streets. 

Sleep Out: Young Professional Edition
On March 23, 2018, young professionals across New York City will sleep outside in solidarity with homeless young people. Their efforts will support young people who need our help. Find out more here!

Sleep Out: Executive Edition
Each November, business leaders and top corporate executives spend one night sleeping on the streets in solidarity with countless homeless kids to let them know they are not alone ... and to let others know that together, we can make a difference. North Jersey executives sleep out at our sister shelter in Midtown Manhattan, and South Jersey executives sleep out at our shelter in Atantic City. 

Last year, 677 business leaders across North America slept out and collectively raised over $4,000,000 to support Covenant House's life-saving programs for homeless youth. We're aiming higher this year! Be a part of this international movement to help kids off the street and to rebuild their lives. One night can make a difference.

Sleep Out: Corporate Edition
In 2013, Arch Reinsurance and Guy Carpenter joined forces to host the first ever Sleep Out: Corporate Edition, where employees from both Morristown-based reinsurance companies slept outside on the same cold pavement where they usually leave their cars before reporting to their warm offices for work.
