Sleep Out: New Orleans

Team Merrill Lynch

We're proud to support our friends at Covenant House, an organization that has provided a safe haven for homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth in our city for 30 years, helping them leave the streets, achieve stability, and either reunite with family or build the skills and resources needed for independent living.

We’re delighted to show our support for their dedicated staff & volunteers – and the many youth they care for. In the past six years, their average daily census has grown from 45 to 160 kids per night. They are ALL good kids desperately in need of help getting off the streets. Covenant House’s first goal is to try and reunite them with family; if not possible, they provide assistance finding a job, saving for an apartment, and much more.

Our team will spend the night sleeping out on the sidewalk - with nothing but a sleeping bag and a cardboard box - as an expression of solidarity with their youth. To support our team, please click "Donate Now" to the right - or select an individual team member.

Covenant House is 83 percent dependent on charitable donations. We're hopeful that you would consider donating to help us reach our goal. Thank you for your support of Covenant House!
