Over half a million people in the US are homeless, 30% of these people have no shelter to go to at night and end up sleeping outside on the street (The US Department of Housing and Urban Development).
The Big Sleep Out is an awareness project that aims to spread consideration for the cause of homelessness by "sleeping out" for a night in order to get a taste of living without a home and make Guilford into a more compassionate community.
