Sleep Out Saturday, November 4, 2023

Night of Hope: One Community

Make a donation to St. Timothy Lutheran Church


On November 4th more than 1,000 children, teens and adults will spend the night sleeping outside in tents, boxes, or cars or doubled up inside their homes without a bed to call their own, all to raise awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities' Transitional Housing Program.

Your help is needed now more than ever. With your help, Bridge Communities will transition over 100 families to self-sufficiency by working with community partners to provide mentoring, housing, and supportive services. Please give to demonstrate your commitment to helping homeless families build a bridge to a brighter future!

Donate now

Give with confidence Nearly 90% of your donation will benefit the families in our transitional housing program.

A personal message from St. Timothy Lutheran Church

The Youth of St. Timothy Lutheran has been participating in Sleep Out Saturday for many years. Caring for our neighbor and supporting community resources like Bridge Communities is essential to our understanding of our Christian Identity and our mission to Live the Love of Christ.

Help us not only meet, but EXCEED our fundraising goal for this year. We'd love to have your support!
