Fairbanks Youth Advocates, 122 Tenth Ave. 99701
In the memo line write One Homeless Night.

At One Homeless Night, participants spent a night sleeping out in shelters made of cardboard boxes to raise funds for the Door and bring awareness to youth homelessness.

Fairbanks City Mayor Jim Matherly, Borough Mayor Karl Kassel and North Pole Mayor Bryce Ward joined together for the second annual Mayors March from North Pole to Fairbanks to help bring awareness to youth homelessness.

Homeless youth are invisible. They are like you, they are like me…trying to fit in and look like everyone else, but they don’t always know where they can stay, or where to go, or if it’s safe. 116 different kids sought shelter at Fairbanks Youth Advocates’ youth shelter, The Door, in 2016. The Door provides kids a safe place to sleep, support with trained advocates, and a place to rebuild connections with families or their support network.

Thank you to One Homeless Night’s 2017 Sponsors!
