Join a Sleep Out

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.
