The Canaan Trust has been supporting and caring for those who are homeless or in need since 1995. In the past 10 years the Trust (operating 24-7, 365 days a year) has remained open and accessible to anyone in need. The Trust received no official funding to provide this support/service but is totally dependent on charitable donations and fundraising. The Trust’s 2024 Sleep Out is going to be dedicated to help raise those vital funds. Your participation, and the sponsorship you raise, will be invaluable, important and valued this year. Your support makes a difference, Thank you for caring.
