In support of our friends at Covenant House, Fat Property will be participating in the annual “Sleep Out”. From their site:
For millions of homeless kids, basic needs like a hearty meal, warm bed, and safe shelter are true luxuries. Instead of knowing the joys of childhood, every day these kids face the life-or-death dangers of living on the streets.
Covenant House was founded over 40 years ago with the mission to help these young people. Today, Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in the Americas providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and essential services to homeless youth in 21 cities throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America.
Covenant House doesn’t stop at offering an immediate safe harbor. We strive to move each young person forward down the path to an independent adulthood, free from the risk of future homelessness. We touched the lives of over 50,000 young people last year alone.
We cannot make such an impact without the help of dedicated individuals sleeping out in solidarity with homeless youth to show them they are not alone.
If you’d like to contribute, you can do so directly to our own campaign or right to Covenant House.
