Family Promise of Linn County is built on the community. The idea that if groups of people from across the Cedar Rapids Metro area come together to donate their time and space, we can assist families out of at-risk situations through hospitality and compassion.
Family Promise in partnership with Newbo Market, invite you to come join our community for a one-night Sleep-Out for Homeless Families. While one night under the stars doesn’t demonstrate one ounce of what our families endure to achieve success, it does communicate we care, we support you, and we want you to be a part of our community. Overnight guests will have a choice between donating to sleep in their car or pitch a tent on the Newbo lawn.
To combat homelessness in the area, we need to create greater access and a more inclusiveness community. Our night is more than just sleeping out; if you cannot join us for that event, please join us for our homeless, educational program, and our entertainment from 6:30 to 9:30 on the night of the 10th. Also, there will be a great breakfast option for anyone in the morning on the 11th beginning at 7am and lasting until 10am.
For our overnight guest’s dinner and breakfast are included in the price of registration, for those coming for entertainment or the breakfast the following morning there will be a fee.
