About the Event

Abby (8), never expected she would be doing her homework in a motel room every night. But when her dad lost his job, her family had to give up their home. They moved into a motel, and Abby went from having her own bedroom to sharing one room with her entire family. It was hard for her to focus on school or imagine a happy future.

Abby’s not alone. 1 in 16 children in the U.S. experience homelessness by the first grade. They and their families can be found sleeping in motel rooms, with friends, or even in their cars. Kids who face homelessness suffer in other ways, as well. They are more likely to drop out of school, repeat a grade, suffer from depression, and attempt suicide.

You can show your support for children and families battling homelessness and raise awareness of this crisis by joining Family Promise’s Night Without A Bed sleepout on June 26, 2021. We invite you to participate in an immersive experience of what a night looks like for a homeless family by giving up your comfortable bed to raise awareness and support for homeless families!

We challenge you to be as creative as possible! Here are a few steps to take:

1.     Spend a night not in your own bed.

2.     Post photos of your Night Without A Bed on social media.

3.     Tag Family Promise of Harrisburg Capital Region on social media.

4.     Use the hashtag #NightwithoutaBed2021HCR.

5.     Ask sponsors to support your efforts to help families battling homelessness.

Thanks to Family Promise, Abby’s parents found employment, the family moved into housing, and Abby’s life began returning to normal. Join Family Promise of Harrisburg Capital Region, on June 26th, to help more families like Abby’s.
