As SleepOut has evolved over the years, a new component was born out of interest, and grew out of necessity due to the pandemic. SleepIn is the opportunity to participate in SleepOut in a hybrid or totally virtual way. Here are some examples of how SleepIn could be right for you!
- Join us for the in-person event and go home after the program and candlelight ceremony to SleepIn the comfort of your home or backyard. Choose a location other than your bed to reflect on what you have learned, and in honor of those who are homeless.
- Participate in 1, listed above, but do so with friends. SleepIn is a fun experience with family, groups, or neighbors. You can use backyards, tents, sleeping bags, anything to enjoy the experience all while learning about homelessness.
- Perhaps you don’t live in Palm Beach County. You can join us virtually for the live-streamed program via Facebook. You can also view last year’s program, which was completely virtual, by clicking here.
- If you choose to SleepIn, we also have a helpful resource guide, arranged by age groups, to simulate SleepOut and educate participants about homelessness through thought-provoking books, movies and conversation starters. Click here for the guide.
Lastly, please consider posting a photo or video on social media of your SleepIn with the hashtags #TLPSleepInforSleepOut #TLPSleepOut #TLPSleepIn and challenge your friends, families, co-workers, and neighbors to do the same. Don’t forget to tag The Lord’s Place. This way, everyone can participate!
