Since the COVID-19 pandemic, more families face the possibility of homelessness today than in any time in the recent past.

 

As of November 2020, 1 in 5 Spokane county renters were unable to pay their full rent. 

  • How do I get involved?
    Start your Night without a Bed experience by RSVPing to the Event Kick Off where you will gain a deeper understanding of what it is like for families in our community to experience homelessness. Buy tickets today!
  • How does me giving up my bed for a night mean a homeless child won't experience bed-lessness?
    Our hope is that through this experience you are better able to relate to these families and thus, are empowered to create a solution to end family homelessness in our city. Ultimately, through an engaged, educated community, no child will have to experience homelessness in the years to come.
