Sleepout for Youth 2019

November 28, 2019

This year in Ottawa, more than 1000 young people will spend the coldest, darkest, and harshest months of the year with no place to call home. Sadly, the winter months are not the only battle for homeless youth in Ottawa. Many are suffering from trauma, mental health issues, poverty, addiction, and other challenges that contribute to homelessness.

Each year, community members and leaders sleep out on TD field to raise critical funds to support homeless youth in our community.
Donate today and plan to join us on November 28th to sleep out and raise critical funds to support homeless youth in our community. We invite you to join us this year and help make a difference in the life of a youth. Registration opens late summer. Learn more at
