On Thursday, March 23rd, more than 100 business and community leaders from the Burlington area and beyond came together for Spectrum’s Executive Sleep Out. They spent the night outside, sleeping on the ground, in solidarity with teenagers and young adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The weekends following the Executive Sleep Out, about 400 students unrolled their sleeping bags at locations across Chittenden County to show their support for homeless youth as part of Spectrum’s Student Sleep Out.
Our goal was to raise $265,000 to provide support for our youth. Thanks to you, we passed our goal and raised over $350,000.

We all had our share of trying moments growing up, but most of us didn’t have to worry about whether we would have food to eat or somewhere to sleep. Participating in the Sleep Out last night exposed me to some of the awful situations that troubled youth are put in. I want to do more to help.
Special thanks to our sponsors!
