3,000 youth in Franklin County will experience homelessness in 2020
During this time of year, Bexley High School hosts the annual Bexley Sleep Out, where Bexley students come together to sleep outside for a night.The purpose is for students to experience the hardships of not having a permanent or comfortable shelter as many teens have to do on a regular basis. Through buying food and raffle tickets, the students are collectively raising money to help other less-fortunate Ohio youth get back up on their feet through the Huckleberry House.
Even though the annual Bexley Sleep Out has been cancelled due to this pandemic, we would still like to keep up the awareness and support for this great organization through the virtual sleep out.
Since 1970, Huckleberry House has provided shelter to teens who have nowhere else to keep safe. Since 1990, we have helped young people transition from homelessness to independent living in market housing. Through a strong combination of emergency shelter, counseling, community connections, and housing options, we are stablilizing lives.
In 2020, in partnership with other youth organizations, we will grow from 45 apartments to 116.
Sleep Out with us April 24 to get a tiny understanding of what our community's youth know too well. Help us raise awareness and the funds needed to support our proven programs.
