This year, more than 330,000 adults and 4.2 million kids will be homeless in America. Fight these numbers by joining or starting a Sleep Out today: You’ll raise lifesaving funds to help us give individuals in Pueblo safe shelter and opportunity and your efforts will go far to help us unite the Pueblo community against homelessness.
The Great Pueblo Sleep Out 2022
The Sleep Out is not about pretending to be homeless. We Sleep Out to show our solidarity with those who are — and to let the world know about the ever-growing population of people of all ages who face homelessness.
WHY SLEEP OUT?
Because everyone deserves a safe place to sleep.
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, in 2021, 326,000 people experienced homelessness on a single given night. In 2021, the US Department of education shared that 4.2 million youth under 18 faced homelessness. Each of these individuals has a story, a dream, and a future.
WHO SLEEPS OUT?
Sleep outs will be coordinated in the Pueblo community. Companies, small businesses, students, young professionals, executives, influencers, families, youth groups, college campus clubs, fraternities, sororities, and individuals will give up their beds for one night to help ensure that others can sleep safely at the Pueblo Rescue Mission.
WHAT’S REQUIRED TO SLEEP OUT?
Nothing is really required. You can sleep any way you would like. Sleeping bag, tent, large box or even just in the elements are allowed. Sleeping in your clothes is required.
