Night Without a Bed is Family Promise’s annual social media challenge to raise awareness about family homelessness. Did you know that families with children make up 35% of the nation’s homeless population? This year, the U.S. housing crisis has grown worse as inflation has risen, and more and more families are unable to find available and affordable housing.
At Family Promise Montco, we are working with our volunteers, donors, and community members to help families get housed and stay housed. Help us take action and raise awareness by joining us for Night Without a Bed! Put yourself in the shoes of a child without a bed of her own to sleep in for just one night—and shed light on this crisis.
Here’s how it works: Any night during the month of October, try sleeping on a sofa, on the floor, in your car—anywhere except your bed. Then share your experience and photos with us on social media @fpmontco and use the hashtag #NightWithoutABed2022. Be sure to tag a friend or two to challenge them to participate next!
