The second annual Sleepout 4 Independence is right around the corner.

On April 11th-12th, 700 campers will unite on the field at Independence Stadium. It's a great opportunity to bring awareness and education in the vital mission of breaking the cycle of homelessness in our community. Sleeping in a “box shelter,” hearing and seeing stories of homeless families who have made the move to independence and permanent housing, and sharing each other’s experiences will bring this ministry up close and personal for our youth and the community. 

This event will not only raise funds for the Providence House program, but it is
also designed to draw our community’s attention to the needs of the homeless,
especially homeless families with children.



We'll have food, music, games, prizes, movies, and so much more. Imagine, the lines between our schools are blurred for a great cause. A Captain Shreve student teaming up with a Byrd student to build a shelter. A Parkway student and a Haughton student teaming up to win a prize. An Evangel student spreading the Gospel with a student from Calvary. It's a thing of beauty!
