Christophe Choo why are we sleeping out on the streets of Hollywood so homeless youth don't have to?
As a human being it keeps me up at night … knowing that there are over 6,000 youth without a safe place to sleep in Los Angeles County, and another 3,500 in Bay Area!
Did you know that …
Close to 1/3 of all homeless youth in the US are in CA?
Close to 50% of homeless youth we work with at the Cov are former foster youth?
Less than 3% of shelter beds in California are designated for young people ?
70% of homeless youth are victims of violent crimes during their time on the streets?
Please take a moment to watch this video which will explain more:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZJK2eN0gs0
That’s why on November 15th, I’ll be “Sleeping Out” in Hollywood to raise funds and awareness for Covenant House California. For one night, I will sleep outside on a piece of cardboard, to show our youth how much I care. The beauty of this fundraiser is that 100% of the money goes directly to serving the youth who call the Cov home.
$100 will provide for one night of safe shelter and three hot meals for a homeless youth.
$250 will pay for a homeless youth's much needed medical exam.
$500 will pay for 90 days of nutritious food for one young person.
$1,000 will pay for food, water, blankets and gas for our Outreach van to support 100 youth living on the street during the holidays.
$2,500 will provide the critical Independent Living Skills program for a youth in our Transitional Housing Program.
$5,000 will pay for 6-months of rent and services for youth in our Supportive Apartments Program.
