We are sleeping out on the streets of Atlanta on November 16th so that homeless youth don't have to. It will be dark. It will be tough. But for one night, we can give up the comforts of home knowing it can bring warmth and hope to young people who need it most.
Each year in 30 cities across North America, Covenant House cares for over 50,000 at-risk and homeless kids in their journey from the street to safety, and ultimately, to independence.
Anything you can do to help in this effort would be greatly appreciated.

Why we are Sleeping Out:
Our three children are fortunate to have loving parents, a safe environment to live and the basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter. With over 3,300 youths on the streets of Atlanta each evening, we want to support this great cause. Please help our local homeless youth by pledging your support.
•$25 will buy shoes for a homeless kid
•$50 will buy school clothing for a youth attending high school from our shelter
•$100 feeds the entire shelter an evening meal
•$1,100 shelters a homeless teen for a month
•$2,500 will buy winter coats for all the youth in our program
•$5,000 stocks the food closets for our independent living programs for a year
•$25,000 provides transportation for all the youth in our program for a year so that they can attend school and work, ending the cycle of homelessness
•$50,000 funds crisis shelter for 30 homeless kids for 6 weeks
Please consider giving up the cost of a grande Starbucks latte for a year ($1,425) to support the youth in Atlanta.
