Tonight young professionals and emerging leaders will spend one night sleeping on the street to raise funds to support our mental health and addictions programs. Many of our youth struggle with mental illness, often as a result of trauma they have experienced, and many are also battling to overcome addictions.
“Sleepers” will interact with some of our youth currently staying with us and those who have stayed with us in the past. They will hear their personal stories of how they found their way to our doors and how their lives have changed since. Youth will also have the opportunity to ask the participants why they support Covenant House and why they are Sleeping Out.
Be sure to join in the discussion on social media using the hash tag #CHSleepOut. You can follow Covenant House Vancouver on Twitter @CovenantHouseBC, on Instagram @covenanthousebc or on our Facebook page. Be sure to tune in for our first Facebook Live Video tonight.
Big thank you to all our “Sleepers” and their supporters!
