Beck Joins Outdoor Sleep-In for Homelessness Awareness

Monmouth-based New Jersey State Senator Jennifer Beck (R-11) today pledged to join legislators who will spend the night of April 11 outside the statehouse to call attention to the plight of homeless individuals throughout the Garden State.

The lawmakers also expect to raise money during the sleep-in organized by Covenant House of New Jersey, considered one of the state’s predominant service providers for homeless and at-risk people under 22 years of age.

“Those of us sleeping outside on the 11th will be lucky,” Beck said in a prepared release. “We only have to do it for one night and it will be during the Spring. Hundreds of youths sleep outside every night and through the most brutal of seasons and during the harshest of weather.”

“Our hope is that our short night of hardship will help raise some much-needed funds so the Covenant House can bring more of these young people in from the cold and show them that they still can have bright futures,” Beck said.

The Republican and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande of the same district are among several organizers spearheading the effort.
