One Cold Night 2018

One Cold Night

Social Advocates for Youth's fall fundraiser, One Cold Night, is a county-wide movement of individuals, known as Sleepers, who accept the challenge to sleep outside for one night so that homeless and at-risk youth don't have to.

This event harnesses the power of the individual, combined with the power of a community, to affect real change at a local level. Every dollar raised by Sleepers and their networks goes directly to getting young people off the streets, out of human trafficking, and connected with caring adults and supportive services.  

This year, One Cold Night includes six sleeping sites that represent key areas of Sonoma County – and the unique struggles and challenges young people face there. Every night, 515 youth ages 12-25 experience homelessness alone in our community, one of the highest rates per capita in the United States.

This event would not be possible without the generous support of our volunteers. This year, we will need more than 60 volunteers to make this fundraiser possible. Do you want to get involved? To help during the event, please sign up for a volunteer position below. We will send you more information regarding your volunteer assignment via email.

Now more than ever the most vulnerable young people among us need access to safe housing, mental health care, and workforce development opportunities. When an entire community stands in support of those who need it most, we make true progress toward a brighter, stronger future.

Get involved. Be an advocate. #OneColdNight2018
