2nd Annual Drive-In Sleep Out
Sat, Sep 29, 3:00 PM – Sun, Sep 30, 10:00 AM
Family Promise of Beaverton is hosting the 2nd Annual Drive-In Sleep Out event at Beaverton City Park (12500 SW 4th St, Beaverton, OR 97005) on Saturday, Sept. 29 & Sunday, Sept. 30. Join the team from Family Promise, as we try to pack 200 parking spots with ‘car-camping adventurers’ who want to raise funds and awareness about child and family homelessness in Beaverton.
Saturday festivities include live music, guest speakers, food, and an art show. There will be hands-on activities for the kids, too. Don’t forget to bring a chair and a blanket since the night ends with a movie in the park for the whole family. Once the festivities end, event participants can spend the night sleeping in their vehicles in order to better understand the reality that so many families in our community are faced with on a daily basis.
On Sunday morning the smell of delicious food will fill the air as volunteers serve a hearty breakfast and lots of coffee to the brave adventurers who Drove-In and Slept Out.
Plan to spend the night in your car? Register here for a parking space. Cost is $25.
After you have registered for the event, Family Promise of Beaverton will contact you by email to confirm important information such as your T-shirt size, team members, etc. Your event registration fee covers the cost of as many people as you can fit inside of your vehicle. Just remember that you might be sleeping in that vehicle, so in some instances, less is more.
Step-by-step registration instructions may be found here.

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.
