Covenant House – Business Leaders Sleeping Outside, So Homeless Youth Don’t Have To.
On November 15, 2012, business leaders across North America will spend one night on the street in solidarity with homeless kids, to raise awareness for their plight and to raise a collective goal of $2.5 million to support services that keep kids off the streets throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America.
From Anchorage to New York, Toronto to New Orleans and in other major cities across the Americas, these courageous men and women will raise funds from their companies, friends and associates to support the life-changing work that is being done to help young people leave the streets and begin new lives. They will draw the attention of the larger business community and our nation to the problem of homelessness among young people.
