Sleeping Out:

 

 

While sleeping out at SleepOut is not required, it is encouraged! You can choose to sleep indoors or outside, under cover or not. Many participants choose to bring tents, and there will be people on hand to help set-up if needed.

 

Sleeping In:

 

 

 

 

 

Should you choose to not spend the night at SleepOut, you can go home and sleep “in” after the program, or you can choose another day to honor our local homeless. Pick any day you would like and sleep in your backyard, or someplace other than your bed. Resources are available to teach children and adults more about homelessness so SleepIn can become an educational opportunity as well as raise awareness.

Do I have to SleepOut?

No!  You can make a donation, join a team, attend the program, participate in the silent auction and then SleepIn in the comfort of your own bed.  You can attend some, or all, or none of the events of that day, your level of participation is entirely up to you!
