The World's Big Sleep Out
On Dec. 7, 2019, people in more than 50 cities around the world will “sleep out” in parks, public places, and backyards to create the world’s largest-ever display of solidarity for people experiencing homelessness and displacement around the globe. DePaul University is pleased to host Chicago’s Big Sleep Out to raise awareness and funds to help the more than 9,000 Chicagoans who are experiencing street and shelter homelessness. As an urban university, DePaul is deeply involved in the life of a global community. It assists in finding just solutions to community problems, especially those which impact our most vulnerable neighbors.
Chicago's Big Sleep Out will be taking place at the Quad on DePaul University's Lincoln Park campus on Dec. 7, 2019. Funds you contribute here will go directly to the Institute of Global Homelessness at DePaul (IGH), which drives a global movement to end street homelessness. IGH will serve as the "legacy partner" and offer support services to all Sleep Out cities around the world to catalyze the energy and momentum of the event into long-term strategies that will effectively address homelessness.
Donate $20 or more and you will receive a complimentary invitation to attend the Sleep Out (indoor!) program from 7-9 p.m.!
