Attention Homes’ 7th Annual Sleep Out is right around the corner & we are challenging YOU to Sleep Out on Thursday, November 8th!
A unique fundraiser, Sleep Out provides a life-changing experience where participants pledge to raise funds and sleep outside downtown on a cold November night. This event breaks down barriers and brings our community together as we experience, for one night, some of the harsh realities facing hundreds of homeless youth in Colorado every night. Sleepers spread awareness and build support by asking friends, family, colleagues and neighbors to join them or support their fundraising efforts.
Take part in this special effort to raise funds & awareness for the critical life-saving programs that Attention Homes provides for youth in crisis in our community!
