Sleep Outs

Every year, Covenant House hosts special fundraising events that support our work serving youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk. Join us for a chance to learn, engage, network and show your commitment to the cause!

Sleep Out events

Sleep Outs are an immersive experience that allows you to explore the causes of youth homelessness, connect with youth at Covenant House and learn about how your fundraising is supporting tangible solutions. By taking up the challenge of spending one night on the street, you are demonstrating your commitment to making a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable.

Ninety per cent of funds raised for Sleep Out events go directly to help the young people we serve.

Sleep Out Executive Edition

2022 Sleep Out Executive Edition

On November 17, 67 executives from across the GTA came together for a night to show youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk they are not alone. Together, these corporate leaders gave up their beds in solidarity and raised over $1.2 million to help Covenant House provide 24/7 shelter, sanctuary and support to youth overcoming homelessness and survivors of sex trafficking.
