Why Amanda Ratzlaff is Sleeping Outside

I’m sleeping outside for one night, so homeless and vulnerable youth can have a lifetime of safety and support. So many of the youth we work with have high-risk factors for homelessness, addiction, gang recruitment, sexual exploitation and extreme poverty. However, we know that early intervention is life-changing. Youth Unlimited’s loving and practical support can massively decrease those risks and help change the trajectory of a youth’s life. One of the ways we do this is through Vancouver Outreach’s beloved “Friday Program”. On Friday’s we go outside, share a meal together, and try to create moments where youth can feel “Okay” and just be; even if it’s just a few minutes. By donating through me, you are unlocking this active and essential prevention work, helping give youth a bright future. Thank you so much for joining me to give generously!
