Transforming the lives of homeless families, because every child deserves a home.
"Building Communities, and Strengthening Lives"
WHAT IS NIGHT WITHOUT A BED? #NightWithoutABed is a social media challenge that raises awareness for families experiencing homelessness. On Saturday, June 20, 2020, the Family Promise Network will join together with our supporters to sleep one night without a bed. --
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE? Every year in America, 2.5 million children experience homelessness in the U.S. These children are three times more likely to be placed in special education programs, eight to nine times more likely to repeat a great, and seven times more likely to die by suicide.
Now with the Coronavirus Pandemic impacting people across the country, low-income families are increasingly at-risk of homelessness and those experiencing homelessness have less access to spaces to safely practice social distancing.
