CEO Sleepout

Today House CEO Sleepout

2017 CEO Sleepout Thursday, September 14, 2017 at KR Barkman Park from 7pm-7am.

The Board of Directors of Today House invites community leaders to participate in the 5th annual CEO Sleepout on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at KR Barkman Park in Steinbach.

The Sleepout is a great opportunity to meet others in the community who want to make a difference by helping Today House create awareness about those experiencing homelessness in our community, and to raise funds.

As you may know, Today House does not receive ongoing government funding.  As such, events like the CEO Sleepout are essential to funding this important work and ensuring that we are able to offer emergency shelter to those in need.  Minimum fundraising per participant is $100. Our goal for 2016 was to raise $50,000.00 and was exceeded by $6000.00. Our goal for the 2017 Sleepout will be to match what we raised in 2016 at $56,000.00!   We would like to thank all who help support Today House in our effort to provide emergency, overnight shelter to those in greatest need.
