You are invited to join us to create an atmosphere of mindfulness surrounding the reality faced by our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness. Be a part of The Lord’s Place community where the only difference is the type of “home” we live in.
Sleepout is an opportunity to step into our neighbors’ “home” for a night. It is also a time to learn about the mission and impact of The Lord’s Place, and the 1,900 men, women, and children we serve. Be a part of an inspirational program featuring powerful stories by those who have been helped out of homelessness followed by a candlelight ceremony. Enjoy family friendly activities, including great food by Joshua Catering, a silent auction, and much more.

|Sleeping In:||Should you choose not to spend the night at SleepOut, you can go home and SleepIn or you can choose another day to reflect on the experience of homelessness. Resources are available upon request to teach children and adults more about homelessness, so SleepIn can become an educational opportunity as well as raise awareness and much needed funding.|
