Turn tents into homes for women and children in Shoreline

From the 2010 camp out
Together we can help some of our most hidden and vulnerable homeless: moms and kids!

Women and friends of Shoreline Covenant Church are turning tents into homes for women and children in Shoreline on September 18 by raising money to expand services at Jacob's Well – a transitional housing complex for homeless women and children.

Bring your tent and pledges from friends, neighbors, family and co-workers and spend one night in solidarity with our sisters who struggle every night to find a safe and dry and warm place to sleep with their kids.

We will end on Saturday morning with breakfast served at 8am! Contact the church by September 11th to register.

This challenge was first done in 2010 when 43 women slept out in tents in the Shoreline Covenant Church parking lot and raised over $18,000 to purchase lumber for the framing of the first building at Jacob’s Well. In 2012, fifty women slept out again and raised $14,000 to buy interior paint for the newly constructed Jacob’s Well.

In 2015, the women of Shoreline Covenant Church are hosting another Sleep-Out to help Vision House begin construction on the SECOND Jacob’s Well building pending Vision House board approval. Each woman who participates must raise a minimum of $100.

If women from any other church or organization would like to join in this event, contact Erika Haub immediately at 206-542-1050 or email her.

Anyone can pledge or can make a flat donation in any amount. Make checks to Vision House, and please note “Sleep-Out” in the memo line. Or to donate online, visit the webpage, click on “donate now” and make a note in the comments field with “Sleep-Out”. 

Questions? Call Pastor Erika at 206-542-1050 or email.
