14th Annual Homeless Awareness Sleep Out Raises $4000+

Since 2005 the youth of Lakewood Congregational Church have participated in the Homeless Awareness Sleep-Out (HASO). They construct outdoor “homes” made out of tarps and cardboard boxes and literally sleep out on the front steps of LCC – overnight, all night. Every year in mid-January, in the snow, sleet, rain, and/or zero degree temperatures, they collect (essentially by “pan-handling”) money to donate back to The Homeless Stand-Down, Family Promise, Lott’s Creek Kentucky Community School, and the Northeast Coalition for the Homeless. Nearly $30,000 has been raised since the program first began.

The 2018 Homeless Awareness Sleep Out raised over $4000 in support of programs to assist the homeless in Greater Cleveland.

It’s not too late! Donate to the 2018 Homeless Awareness Sleep Out. On the page to confirm your donation, click on ‘Add special instructions to the seller’ and enter “HASO” in the box.
