Manchester, NH – PROCON, a design and construction management company, was a $10,000 sponsor of the Child and Family Services (CFS) SleepOut event that took place on Friday, March 20 to increased community awareness about the plight of homeless youth. Over $134,000 was raised to help stabilize and transform the lives of youth who become homeless. The event was held in Stanton Park in downtown Manchester.
On any given night, 300 youth are homeless in the Manchester area, and in a year’s time, over 1,500 runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth access Child and Family Services. CFS seeks to change the trajectory of these youth, providing them with the support and skills they need to live safe and productive lives.
“Working together with Child and Family Services, PROCON is committed to making a positive difference in our community,” stated Mark Stebbins, owner and CEO of the company.
Steve Kanavich, a project estimator with PROCON, joined community leaders in participating in the SleepOut, an overnight stay in the park across from the Radisson Inn Manchester in freezing cold temperatures.
“It was the best night sleep I have had in a long time,” he says.
