About Event

The 9th annual Sleep Out is happening now! For the last 8 years, we've been humbled by the depths individuals have gone through to make youth homelessness rare, brief & nonrecurring. Our first Sleep Out event blew us out of the water when 32 sleepers raised $50,048! Fast forward to last year when we broke records with 132 sleepers who raised $152,000!

 

There is no more significant source of inspiration than when a group of change-makers come together to alter another's trajectory and invest in their future.

 

Join us on November 5th for our 9th Annual Sleep Out (Host on your own Pod-Style). Create an impact wherever you are by raising awareness and funds for Attention Homes. Register today as an individual, host a team/Pod, or both! If you choose to join as a team, you will still see your donations come in and collectively reach your fundraising goal!

 

Starting your fundraising page is easy:

 

Step 1: Decide to help. It only takes a minute to set up your fundraising page. Name your pod and location. Set your fundraising goal. And just like that, you are ready to put your mark on ending youth homelessness.

 

Step2: Tell As Many People As Possible. Call mom, dad, cousins and your best friend who owes you that $20 and let them know that you are doing something amazing, and you need their help. 

 

Step 3: Recognize the work you've done. Just like that, you've not only raised funds for a critical cause, but you've raised awareness about the importance of ending youth homelessness. There is no doubt, you are a change maker. Don't believe it? We'll explain it more on November 5th at our interactive program via Zoom from 7 PM-8:15 PM.

 

While this is not the kick-off to our 9th Annual Sleep Out (Pod-Style) we'd hoped for, we assure you that your Sleep Out fundraising efforts will immediately support young people in our community.  We have witnessed an uptick in youth (ages 12-24) needing critical services in these difficult times. We are currently operating at 100% capacity with a waiting list of young adults looking for individualized care, support, and a place to call home.

 

As you can see, there is more work that needs to be done. However, with your help, Attention Homes can stay the course to continue providing front line support to youth experiencing homelessness. Thank you for being a part of this important work.

This year, although the event will be a bit different, we assure you that your Sleep Out fundraising efforts will go a long way within the community.  

Details due to COVID 19- Attention Homes values the safety and health of our community and supporters.  This year, in 2020, we have decided to shift the program to Zoom and help organize small Sleep Out Pods, 6 ft apart, within the community.  If you are interested in hosting a small Sleep Out Pod, please feel free to register your team.  If you would like Attention Homes to help organize your Pod, please reach out to Becca Blay: bblay@attentionhomes.org 720-273-7606

The Sleep Out program will be hosted via Zoom from 7 PM-8:15 PM.  Each Pod will be supplied with pay it forward bags to pass out to the homeless community as well as pizza and instant coffee for the morning.
