It's hard to imagine, But every night there are thousands of homeless people on the streets of metro Detroit. 

That's why Covenant House Michigan is working to raise awareness with their Sleep Out for Homelessness event this Friday.

Dozens of young professionals will leave the comfort of their homes and spend the night outside.
