October 26th, 2017 • RBC Convention Centre
The CEO Sleepout is about starting conversations.
CEOs and Community Champions from around Winnipeg come together with those with lived experience to create a dialogue and work towards finding solutions to reducing homelessness in our community.
Since 2011, the CEO Sleepout has raised over $800,000. That means 137 people with lived experience have been employed – adding up to over 70,000 hours on-the-job thanks to your generosity.
Year after year, the CEO Sleepout raises awareness and funds to end homelessness, and in doing so, proves that Winnipeg is a caring community that works together to build a stronger city. It will take our entire community working together, including government, private sector, and non-profit organizations to help end homelessness. City Council has committed $150,000 per year to fund the United Way's Plan to End Homelessness, and as Mayor, and as a CEO Sleepout participant for 3 years, I am proud to be a part of a change for the better.
- Mayor Brian Bowman, City of Winnipeg
