10th Anniversary Sleep Out
November 18, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - November 19, 2021 @ 6:00 amDonation
The 10th Anniversary Covenant House SLEEP OUT on November 18th promises to be a very special night!
Our goal is to recruit 200 Sleepers and raise $600,000 to support young people overcoming homelessness in New Orleans.
Sign up today to join us – either in-person or virtually – at http://neworleans.sleepout.org. Or you can also live-stream the program right here on Facebook!
Covenant House youth have faced unprecedented challenges in the midst of the pandemic, but their resilience has been inspiring. Our dedicated staff have continued working 24/7 (at great personal risk) to provide unconditional love, absolute respect, and comprehensive services like food, clothing, shelter, short & long-term housing, medical & behavioral healthcare, individual & family counseling, job training & placement, educational assistance, and more.
Most of the youth at Covenant House have experienced years of physical and/or sexual abuse, domestic and/or street violence, and the resulting profound trauma that often leads to substance abuse, mental health issues, and more. Sleeping Out is our opportunity to let them know they are not alone: that we stand with them in their struggles, celebrate their courage and resiliency, and support their promise and dreams.
We’re honored that Jeff & Walton Goldring have signed on as honorary chairs of this year’s event, along with event chairs Karyn Noles Kearney and Christian Rhodes! Early lead sponsors include Gulf Coast Bank & Trust and Allstate.
