SleepIn for SleepOut
The Lord’s Place has exceeded the SleepIn for SleepOut fundraising goal of $350,000!
We did it – with your help!
Thanks to the challenge match of $300,000 by The Honorable Ann Brown,
The Lord’s Place SleepIn for SleepOut has raised more than $700,000!
Thank you to all of our very generous donors.
Ann has been a part of our world for many years, and is one of our greatest supporters.
“It doesn’t matter where you sleep – on your couch, in your car, on the floor, or in your yard,” Brown said.
“What matters is that we dedicate one night to those who never get to sleep in a bed.”
We are so grateful for her continuing friendship, and her endless support of our mission and our clients!

|What:||The Lord’s Place SleepOut event on Friday, April 3 will happen, but not as originally planned. In concert with community-wide efforts to curb the spread of the Coronavirus, The Lord’s Place will continue to shine a light on homelessness and raise funds for its life changing programs to help those who are homeless by moving SleepOut to the individual homes of each participant. The community is invited to SleepIn at their home in support of SleepOut.|
|The Lord’s Place wants to ensure that April 3 remains a night dedicated to those who are homeless. Instead of the public event at which hundreds have slept outside overnight for the past 12 years, the agency will provide “SleepIn for SleepOut Kits.” Participants are encouraged to set up sleeping bags and tents in their homes or backyard and spend the night focused on the issue of homelessness and how to help those on need.|
Everyone who registers will receive a SleepIn for SleepOut kit that includes resources to learn about homelessness, a t-shirt, some treats and a candle to light in solidarity for the nearly 3,000 people affected by homelessness in Palm Beach County. The agency will also provide a virtual and inspiring program, distributed to participants for viewing during their individual SleepIn via web, email and social media. Participants are encouraged share their SleepIn for SleepOut stories in real time via social media. #TLPSleepInforSleepOut #TLPSleepIn #TLPSleepOut
