CEO Sleepout - St Vincent de Paul Society (NT) Inc

A MAJOR ISSUE FACED BY HOMELESS PEOPLE IS THE LACK OF COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDING ABOUT HOMELESSNESS, ITS CAUSES AND EFFECTS. TO GENERATE IMPORTANT FUNDS AND AWARENESS IN SUPPORT OF VINNIES’ WORK WITH THE HOMELESS, THE VINNIES CEO SLEEPOUT WAS CONCEIVED.

The idea was to give business and community leaders a real opportunity to fight homelessness in their sleep by allowing them to experience what it is like to sleep rough for one night. With the support of business, community and government leaders, we can change lives and break the cycle of homelessness.

Funds raised through the Vinnies CEO Sleepout® in Darwin allows Vinnies to provide:

— Over 21000 safe night’s sleep for 469 homeless men and families

— Mentoring to provide pathways to employment for selected people experiencing homelessness.

— 522 Darwin families (including children), who are at risk of homelessness much needed support through our home visitation program.

Collectively this event has raised over $1,000,000 to assist Darwin’s most disadvantaged men, women and children to rise above poverty and homelessness.

This years event is being held at the Darwin Waterfront on June 22nd starting at 5.30. You can register or donate at www.ceosleepout.org.au
