Wellington Sleep Out Donors
Wellington Sleep Out
In 2017, 1300 young people stayed in homeless shelters in Columbus and Franklin County. 532 of them were teenagers who found safety and support at the Huckleberry House crisis shelter.
Another 76 young adults did not have to go to a homeless shelter because the Huck House Transitional Living Program gave them a safe place to live while gaining the education, employment, and life skills needed to live independently in permanent housing.
What is a Sleep Out?
On April 13, we are sleeping outside at Wellington - warm or cold, rain or shine - to raise awareness about the serious issue of youth homelessness in central Ohio.
All proceeds will benefit the proven programs of Huckleberry House.
Why are we sleeping out?
Katz Kadlic and Max Thesing are hosting the Wellington Sleep Out for their senior independent project. Their goal is to raise awareness for homeless youth in central Ohio throughout their own community.
