The Covenant House Michigan Virtual Sleep Out will take place November 19 in communities across North America on their 10th anniversary. Approximately 4.2 million young people face homelessness each year, and the Sleep Out brings families, friends and coworkers together virtually for a meaningful night of conversation, contemplation, education and story sharing. Participants can sleep out on their own or with a team from a backyard, porch, terrace, garage, kitchen floor or car and tune in to the Sleep Out livestream and activities throughout the night.

In a time when housing is health care, the funds and awareness raised so that Covenant House Michigan can remain open 24/7 have never been more critical. All funds raised from sleepers in Michigan support Covenant House’s work in Detroit and Grand Rapids. Covenant House Michigan provides homeless young people with safe shelter and wrap-around services, including education and job training, so they can move forward to an adulthood free of poverty and the threat of homelessness.

Sign up or support sleepers at SleepOut.org. Covenant House is located at 2959 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., in Detroit. For more information, call 313-463-2000.
