(WTXL) — Justin Barfield joined WTXL Monday morning to tell us about this year's Sleep Out event.
On November 7, Tallahassee organizations will be giving up the comforts of home for one night to raise awareness of homelessness in our community.
Local community leaders will also support front line agencies working to shelter, feed, clothe, and support individuals, families, children, and veterans who are experiencing homelessness.
The goal is for each sleeper to raise $850 as a symbol of community and collaboration.
All proceeds from Sleep Out benefit CCYS, CESC, and Big Bend Homeless Coalition.
Sleep Out Tallahassee is a joint effort between three non-profits in the Tallahassee area focused on ending homelessness.
They are Big Bend Homeless Coalition (BBHC), Capital City Youth Services (CCYS) & The Kearney Center (CESC). All three are front line, homeless service agencies that provide emergency shelter, case management, basic needs, and supportive services to help our neighbors move into stable housing.
