Sleep Out 2020

The Sleep Out is our community’s annual eight-week series of events and experiences to raise awareness and $2.6 million to prevent homelessness and create opportunities for everyone in our community to thrive.

For 25 years, the Sleep Out is how our community has celebrated and tapped into the power of collective compassion. It’s how we continue to help each other through times of crisis and find hope for the future.

Through the Sleep Out, our community has prevented homelessness 34,281 times. Double your impact – donations made by Nov. 19 will be matched up to $250,000.

Be Like Bob Challenge

The Sleep Out started 25 years ago with one man in a tent. Celebrate Bob Fisher’s legacy by accepting the “Be Like Bob” Challenge! Take action yourself and challenge others to do the same when you support the Sleep Out in one or many of these four ways:

1. make a donation


2. create a fundraiser


3. sleep out (or in)


4. plant a “You Belong” yard sign

What will you do to shine your light of compassion? Let us know and we’ll add a star to our Sleep Out night sky in your honor.
