This is Interfaith Outreach and the Sleep Out’s biggest day – Give to the Max Day! Enjoy this family friendly dance party with live music by two great local bands, PowerTap and Morpheus. Bring family and friends. Your donation to the Sleep Out helps 2,000 of our neighbors stay in this community where they live, work and play.
Last year, 1 in 5 families who came to Interfaith Outreach for help were experiencing homelessness. Housing is foundational for family stability. In our affluent community, housing choices are few for folks living in poverty. While people should pay no more than 30% of their income for housing, it is not unusual for Interfaith families to spend up to 65%. And, of those experiencing homelessness, 49% are doubled up with other families, 34% live at a battered women’s shelter, and the rest are living in cars, hotels and even out on the street.
But you provide hope. By supporting Interfaith Outreach and the 2018 Sleep Out campaign, you support affordable homes and life-changing services for nearly 2,000 families annually. Because of you, families are sheltered from the cold. Because of you, families stabilize and kids do better in school. Because of you, adults find and keep jobs.
