What is SleepOut 4 Independence?

SleepOut 4 Independence is a 15-hour educational event that engages young people and the community about issues that homeless families with children face every day. 700 participants will form teams, build shelters out of cardboard and SleepOut on April 29, 2017. There will be food and fun and also an educational experience that allows campers to "walk a mile in the shoes" of families who have come to Providence House homeless and gone on to transform their lives and the lives of their children!
