Sleep a #NightWithoutABed to raise awareness and support,

and maybe one day no child will have to!


Donate to your congregation or company team here (links to external site)!

Sleepout occurs Saturday, May 1 (livestream at 8pm)

Drive thru coffee/donuts (8-9a) and outdoor yoga (8:30-9a) on Sunday, May 2

 

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 and a CARES Act grant.  Can you help us keep those units rented?

From April 2 to May 1, you can...

  • Donate for your congregation, company, or other group goal;
    • There is a plaque for both most funds raised and most donations received!
  • Plan to "sleepout" on Saturday, May 1 and receive social media content to share homelessness facts and stories during the month with your networks;
    • There is a plaque for most creative sleepout!
  • Tune in Saturday, May 1 at 8pm to Facebook for a special program about homelessness and ways to address it.
  • Celebrate together by driving to Lawrence United Methodist Church (5200 Shadeland Ave.) from 8am-9am on Sunday, May 2 for drive thru coffee, milk, donuts, and first come/first serve T-shirts (200 for those who show their #NightWithoutABed post on their phone!).  Park for outdoor yoga (socially distanced, bring a blanket) led by Tanisha Neely of Resilient Yoga (who also happens to be our IHN co-coordinator at Lawrence UMC!).

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

...because every child deserves a home!
