SleepIn for SleepOut

By

This year’s Virtual SleepIn for SleepOut will be like no other virtual event you have attended!

You can be involved in as much you would like – from simulations and an inspirational program, to learning about homelessness through our resource guide and staging a SleepIn in the comfort of your home in solidarity with those affected by homelessness.
SleepIn for SleepOut is about stepping into our neighbors’ “home” for a night and ensuring that Friday, April 9, is a night dedicated to those who are homeless.  The critical funds raised by teams and sponsorship go directly to The Lord’s Place’s mission, and impacts the lives of 1,700 men, women, and children served annually in their journey out of homelessness.  Everyone is invited to join us virtually for this FREE event and program featuring powerful stories by those affected by homelessness followed by a live candlelight ceremony, all from the comfort and safety of your home.  This year, additional activities and resources have been added, including a live panel of clients who were formerly homeless and/or incarcerated.  This inspirational event will encourage you to set up sleeping bags and tents in your home, learn more about homelessness, and inform you on how you can be a part of the solution! 
How to Learn More and Help Us Reach our $375,000 Fundraising Goal!
Visit www.SleepOutTLP.org, learn more, consider starting a team by registering, and spread the word to encourage awareness and donations! More importantly – every dollar donated will be matched!
Event Schedule: Everyone is invited to log on to www.TheLordsPlace.org on April 9th, click the EVENT button in the upper right corner, and choose from a menu of options.  We encourage everyone to participate starting at 6 p.m.  While most menu items will be available after the event, a few live portions will not be, including the LIVE candlelight ceremony at 7:30 p.m.  Don’t miss this special FREE community event!

How do I participate?
It’s so much more than just Sleeping Out…

Why Should I Create a Team?
SleepOut is not only a fundraiser; it is a FRIEND-raiser!  We know that the best way to introduce people to our mission is through friends.  That’s why TEAMS are so great!  Invite your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors to join your team. Teams are excellent for company team building, school clubs, religious groups, social clubs and networks, volunteer groups, friends, families… in short – EVERYONE!
How Do I Create or Join a Team?
On www.SleepOutTLP.org, you will have the option to register as an individual, create a team, or join one.
CREATE A TEAM: If you are creating your own team, select the CREATE A TEAM option.  From here, you’ll create your profile, then you’ll get to name your team, upload a photo, and create your team’s profile.
JOIN A TEAM: Select JOIN A TEAM.  You’ll be instructed to set up your team member information.  Once your page is completed, you can search for the team you want to join.  Then click the JOIN OUR TEAM button on their page.

SleepOut Sponsorship sustains our programs throughout the year.  Sponsor as a company, family, or team!  Contact Marilyn Munoz for more information: 561.578.4928 or click here.
SleepSheep
SleepSheep create visual public awareness highlighting how your office, house of worship, or school has committed to help end homelessness in our community.  Ask friends if they’d like to donate to The Lord’s Place, and write their name on a Sheep, then proudly display them on a wall for other customers to see.  They are also a great way to gain support for your team, as you can post it with someone’s name on it on social media as a thank you!
Help Us Spread the Word!
SleepOut went from 600 people in person in 2019, to more than 6,000 people virtually through SleepIn for SleepOut in 2020!  Help us spread the word by posting and sharing on social media!
