Baratta, Russell & Baratta’s Courtney Zeuner participated in Covenant House Pennsylvania’s 1st Annual Sleep Out : Women Unite.
On April 28, 2017, Covenant House Pennsylvania hosted the first annual Sleep Out: Women Unite. At this inaugural event, 45 women slept on the street and raised over $50,000 for homeless, runaway, and trafficked girls throughout the Philadelphia region.
In an inspirational evening held at the shelter, the participants met our staff and kids, heard their stories, gained a deeper understanding of the issues they face, and learned all about Covenant House’s programs and services. At around 11:00 p.m., the ladies were handed a sleeping bag, a garbage bag, and a cardboard box and headed outside of the shelter to sleep on the street in an act of solidarity with our homeless young people.
