Covenant House Sleep Out: Champions Edition
Join a powerful community of business leaders and public figures and give up your bed for one night to support young people facing homelessness. Sign up to sleep out or make a donation and be part of the movement to help change the lives of youth staying in our Crisis Program.
What is Sleep Out: Champions Edition?
Sleep Out: Champions Edition is a fundraising initiative for anyone who would like to actively support vulnerable youth. On Thursday, February 17, 2022, people across the Lower Mainland and beyond will give up their beds for one night, to raise funds that will help support youth who are staying in our Crisis Program.
Why is Sleep Out: Champions Edition Important?
Funds raised during Sleep Out: Champions Edition will go to support the mental health and addictions programs at CHV. Many of the youth living on the streets of Vancouver experience mental health concerns that are often left undiagnosed, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. Often these youth cope by turning to substance use.
Covenant House Vancouver offers these youth an opportunity to address any counselling and psychiatric needs. Our Registered Clinical Counsellors work from an attachment theory lens, which recognizes that a safe and trusting relationship is a basic biological human need, much like the food, clothing, and shelter that we provide.
Who Can Get Involved?
Anyone can be a champion. Join a powerful community of business leaders and public figures and give up your bed for one night to support young people facing homelessness. Sign up now and start fundraising for this virtual event.
Sleep Out: Champions Edition happens Thursday, February 17, 2022!
