Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

Dozens of people slept outside in downtown Colorado Springs Thursday night to experience what it's like to be homeless and raise awareness about youth homelessness. 

As part of Urban Peak's Night Out volunteers raise money for Colorado Spring's Youth Homeless Shelter and learn about the challenges that homeless people face every day.

Volunteers can only use sleeping bags, cardboard boxes and tarps. The goal is to raise $40,000 to help fund the shelter which provides 20 beds for homeless youth ages 15 to 20. To donate click here
