Sleep out for homeless youth
Year after year, hundreds of individuals pledge to Sleep Out for youth experiencing homelessness on one night. With only a sleeping bag, those courageous individuals sleep outside, no matter the weather, to raise awareness of youth homelessness and to raise funds that support the young people at TGTHR.
The Sleep Out event allows community members to make a meaningful impact while gaining perspective, and getting a small glimpse into some of the harsh realities that youth experiencing homelessness face every night. This fundraising event is designed to spark conversation about the growing issue of youth homelessness, as well as raise critical funds for the programs at TGTHR.

On Saturday, September 11th, over 210 folks came together to celebrate the successes of the young people at TGTHR’s 14th Annual Gala, TGTHR Under the Stars. In the form of virtual participation and host parties, we had a successful night bidding on fun getaways and supporting an incredible cause. We congratulated our 3rd Youth Enterprise Award recipient, Gianna (she/her/hers) for her hard work and dedication. Her perseverance through self-improvement and participation in building up her community on the tenant association made her the perfect candidate. In addition, we honored several community members dedicated to this work to end youth homelessness.
Together, we raised over $280k, and climbing, to support youth facing homelessness in our community! These generous donations will ensure that our programs remain operational for this young population in the coming year. Thank you to all who participated. We are left feeling inspired by the overwhelming volume of support that came in from all across the country. Thank you.
