Drive In - Sleep Out - June 10-11, 2017

A huge THANK YOU to those who joined us for our inaugural Drive In - Sleep Out! Together we raised $35,000! 

For one night, we drove in and slept out at the Beaverton Fountain Park. Participants could commit to spend the night in their car to raise awareness and money to help end family homelessness in Beaverton. Understanding that not everyone is able to sleep in their car overnight, there was an option to become a Backseat Driver and participate in the event with the option of going home when we turned in for the night.

We had live music, BBQ, games and watched Zootopia on the big screen in the park. In the morning we had a wonderful pancake breakfast.

Last year, over 1,600 students in the Beaverton School District were affected by housing instability or found themselves without any shelter at all. This event will help families take a U-Turn toward success in an effort to make sure every student has the stability they need.
