Why David McKnight is Sleeping Outside

This December (2020) Lifeteams and I will be sleeping outside to help fight and prevent youth homelessness, alongside many others. In April, the homeless count found nearly 700 youth (ages 13-24) homeless in Metro Vancouver. Thousands more experience episodic homelessness and are considered precariously or inappropriately housed. According to Raise the Roof, over 35,000 youth experience homelessness throughout the year in Canada. Family conflict, addiction and mental health issues were cited as the biggest reasons individuals found themselves homeless. By donating to me, you are continuing Youth Unlimited’s active and prevention work with homeless and vulnerable youth, providing tangible help, caring support and a way out. I’m giving up one night, so these youth can have a lifetime. If you feel on your heart to donate, please support me by donating and helping the cause! Thank you for your help! :D
