Sleep Out Saturday

Join the estimated 2,000 teens and adults in an outdoor, all-night movement and fundraiser assisting local homeless families: the 13th annual “Sleep Out Saturday”. Approximately 75 sleep-out sites participate throughout DuPage County on church lawns, in school parking lots and in families’ back yards supporting the #HomelessNoMore movement. Participants choose to leave the comforts of a warm bed in exchange for sleeping in cardboard box homes, portable tents and inside cars – experiencing a night as homeless families are forced to often do. From beneath sleeping bags and around campfires, participants create awareness of the growing need for shelter for at-risk families and raise money to support Bridge Communities’ programs, including transitional housing, life-skills mentoring, financial counseling, employment training, tutoring and other services.
