Sleep out so others don't have to!!
From Friday, April 22nd, 7pm to Saturday, April 23rd, 8am, dedicated adults, teens, and children will be sleeping out to raise critical funds and awareness for people experiencing homelessness in Monroe County, Indiana. With sleeping bags, tarps, and tents, participants can choose to gather on the grounds of First United Church (https://firstuc.org/) or sleep in our backyards, on our living room floor, etc.
All ages are welcome. Adults and teen participants are asked to register, choose a personal fundraising goal, and ask friends and family to sponsor them as they sleep out.
The net proceeds from the event will support Beacon's overnight shelter, Friend's Place, the only nonreligious, year-round emergency shelter for homeless adults in the region. Friend's Place is a sober shelter for Monroe County residents, providing hope and support as people find their way back home. Combined with Beacon's housing and employment assistance, Friend's Place has become one of the most successful shelters in Indiana.
