Last year, 32 executives, philanthropists, local celebrities and civic leaders spent one night on the street, bringing awareness for the plight of homeless youth in the St Louis region. Proving that one night does make a difference! These sleepers through the Covenant House Missouri Executive Sleep Out event helped to raise over $218,000 to support Covenant House Missouri (CHMO) in its mission to serve homeless and at-risk youth.
LIFE - Turn One Around...Help the 2014 sleepers reach our $200,000 Goal!
In fiscal year 2014, Covenant House Missouri served 5,765 youth through outreach, short and long term residential programs and comprehensive support services. Last year’s generous contribution to the Executive Sleep Out allowed CHMO to help - Turn The Lives Around - of 44 youth by providing them the opportunity to stay in our Transitional Living Program for six-months. This program will provide them the Life Skills they need to break the cycle of adult homelessness.
On November 20th, 2014, from Anchorage to New York, Toronto to New Orleans and in other major cities across North America, participants will raise funds from their companies, colleagues, friends and families to support the life-changing work that is being done to help young people leave the streets and begin new lives. These leaders will draw the attention of the larger business community and our nation to the problem of homelessness among young people.
