"You Belong" message energizes the Sleep Out, helps us teach kids about empathy



A note from our Executive Director

Dear friends,

The Sleep Out campaign is focused on the 1 in 5 families that arrived at Interfaith last year for whom a "new normal" was homelessness. An urgent and heartbreaking reality that calls forth the best in us. We want to change that reality. These folks are us. They belong. The first step is an attentive and empathic response from all of us, including our kids. We've created a tool, an empathy activity, that I'm hoping you might share with your kids and extended family and consider making a family Sleep Out gift online. Thanks so much!

Sleep Out update: 62% to goal

The "You Belong" signs that have popped up all over town are reminders that our community has the heart, will and collective power to keep our neighobrs where they belong -- in our community. That power is showing up in the $1,599,597 raised toward our Sleep Out goal of $2,600,000 by Dec. 31! Thank you for helping prevent homelessness for nearly 2,000 local families.
