SleepIn for SleepOut
SleepOut is about stepping into our
neighbors’ “home” for a night and ensuring that the night
remains dedicated to those who are homeless.
What to expect: SleepOut has evolved over the years. It started as a small, bare bones gathering in 2008 and grew into a well-attended event and program. In recent years, it has added a SleepIn option and a virtual program. What has remained the same is its mission of educating participants and changing the lives of those who are experiencing homelessness.
This year, we plan to provide a safe, outdoor experience to learn more about the programs, services, and clients of The Lord’s Place. A short program will also be available featuring music, inspirational client stories, a message from The Lord’s Place staff about how our community can truly be a part of the solution, and a closing candlelight ceremony. After the program, attendees are encouraged to grab a sleeping bag to sleep at the event, or their home, in solidarity with those who are homeless. In the morning, we offer a poignant reflection that will also be available virtually should you choose to SleepIn the comfort of your home. We are prepared to pivot should we need to go fully virtual, though we do hope we can see you safely in person! Regardless, you are sure to leave this event educated, inspired and ready to help The Lord’s Place solve the problem of homelessness.

A SleepOut team can elevate friendships and collaboration at companies, schools, houses of worship, clubs and neighborhoods, and among families. Everyone is welcome to join. We are here to help guide you every step of the way. Email Info@TheLordsPlace.org today for more details!
