Sleeping out to fight homelessness
It’s been stated that each night, as many as 3,000 unaccompanied youth are homeless in Missouri. To help combat this problem one house is offering individuals who are not homeless to put themselves in the place of a homeless teenager by sleeping outdoors for one night.
Covenant House Missouri, a shelter for homeless youth, is hosting its third Sleep Out: Young Professional Edition the evening of Friday, March 22 through Saturday morning. The sponsorship fundraiser to support the shelter and increase awareness of the epidemic among youth will take place on the grounds of the facility located at 2727 North Kingshighway Blvd.
