During the week of October 17 – 23 Family Promise of Southern Delaware needs your help to raise awareness and funds for families experiencing homelessness through its Night Without a Bed campaign.  As part of Family Promise Week 2022 we will be posting to Facebook and Instagram daily to draw attention to the reality of families experiencing homelessness face.  

 

The campaign ends with a sleep-out event - A Night Without A Bed - at the Lightship Overfalls at Lewes Canalfront Park on October 21, 2021. 

At the event teens and their chaperones from local youth and church groups will sleep outside in tents near the Overfalls Lightship in Lewes in order to simulate the experience of being homeless. In the run-up to the event, participants will challenge friends, neighbors, and family members to contribute financially to Family Promise of Southern Delaware at our Fundraiser Page.

You are encouraged to join us to make this a success.  Here’s how:

 

  1. Join us and our overnight campers at the Overfalls the on the evening of October 21 starting at 6:00 PM to show your concern for families experiencing homelessness and learn what Family Promise is doing. Lewes Mayor Andrew William will make opening NWAB kick-off remarks at 6:45 PM.

  2. Plan to spend a Night Without a Bed yourself.  Maybe sleep in your car, on the sofa, or a tent in your backyard. On the day of the event everyone is encouraged to share photos on social media showing how you will spend Night Without a Bed!
