The Sleep Out Experience

Sleep Out includes opportunities to learn from experts, hear inspiring stories, and advocate for a future where everyone has a safe place to sleep. Prior to Sleep Out, you will receive emails from your event coordinator with the schedule, venue, and list of what you need to bring with you. If you are creating your own event, a Sleep Out coach can talk you through how to plan a meaningful evening.
