Sleepout For Homelessness

Keep The Home Fires Burning

Thanks for registering for Sleepout 2021!  Here are the details you need to know:


  • We've created a fundraising media kit that includes pre-made videos, messages, and photos all ready for you to use to solicit support. Feel free to create your own, too. Get creative! 

  • The hashtag #CFFSleeps will be used for the event - use it in your social media presence to let others know about your participation.


If you are an overnight sleeper, we will provide group tents at the sleepout location.  You'll want to bring along the following items

    • Multiple layers of warm clothing, including hats, gloves, and boots.

    • A sleeping bag (ideally rated for 0 degrees weather)

    • A sleeping pad (get your bag a few inches off the ground)

    • A blanket or two to wrap over your sleeping bag, or sit around campfire with.

    • A foldable chair if you have one (we will also have some)​

  • Indoor bathrooms will be available.

  • Sleepout location is 530 W. Fullerton Parkway, Chicago, IL

  • There is no on-site parking. Plan to arrive by Uber or public transportation if possible.
