What is Sleep Out Georgia?
Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. We Sleep Out to show our solidarity with those who are — and to let the world know about the ever-growing population of young people who face homelessness.
And there's more to Sleep Out than a night without a mattress. Sleep Out raises critical funds to help Covenant House provide 24/7 shelter, sanctuary, and support to youth overcoming homelessness.
Participants of Sleep Out are required to raise a minimum of $5,000.00 for Covenant House GA and will stay the night on the Covenant House GA grounds. Majority of donors leave by 5 am the next morning.
MPI GA volunteers will help with either set up the day before, or registration and other logistical needs on the day of the event. The latest shift will end at 9 pm.
