Sleep a #NightWithoutABed to raise awareness and support,

and maybe one day no child will have to!


Campaign begins Friday, April 2

Sleepout occurs Saturday, May 1

 

Each night, most of us go home to warm covers on comfortable mattresses.  For 10 families each day, they are calling to Indianapolis shelters hoping to get one of the limited spots.  Many more are doubled-up in apartments after an eviction, or worse in a car with their kids, trying to sleep before school or work the next day.

Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis began an Apartment Shelter Program (ASP) in 2020 to expand shelter capacity when it was needed most.  Twenty units were rented and furnished with the support raised from #NightWithoutABed last year.  Can you help us keep those units rented?

In March, this site here will have links to sign up for any of the following ways...

  • Request a page be created for your congregation, company, or other group to set a goal and receive donations towards apartment rents;
    • There is a trophy for both most funds raised and most donations received!
  • Sign up to sleep out on May 1 and receive social media content to share homelessness facts and stories during the month with your networks;
    • There is a trophy for most creative sleepout!
  • Get invited to tune in on Saturday, May 1 for a special children's program and adult program about homelessness and local solutions to address it.

MATCHING CHALLENGE GIFTS NEEDED: Can you, your congregation, or your company sponsor a matching grant challenge for the campaign?  Pledges of $2,500, $5,000, or $7,500 are needed (that last one, if matched, funds an entire apartment shelter for a year!).  Email Mike (This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are really excited about this year's event and hope you join us...

...because every child deserves a home!
