    Help put homelessness to bed! Joppa is inviting people of all ages to participate in Project PJ on Friday, Jan. 29 as a reminder that everyone needs a safe place to sleep at night.

    Whether you’re at work, at school or at home…
    1. Wear your PJs on Friday, Jan. 29, 2021
    2. Take a picture and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram
    3. Use the hashtag #ProjectPJ to show your support!

    For most people, putting on pajamas before heading to bed is part of their daily routine. For hundreds of men, women and children who are homeless in Iowa, getting comfortable before bedtime, let alone finding a warm place to sleep at night, is not an option. Project PJ serves as a visible reminder that everyone needs a warm, safe place to sleep. Wear your PJs, slippers and robes to show your support for ending homelessness!

    Visit or email for more information. We can also send parents and teachers fact sheets, toolkits, videos and more.

    Joppa is a local, volunteer-based nonprofit organization that helps homeless people survive, find housing and rebuild their lives. Joppa collaborates with community partners and helps homeless people access existing resources by mobilizing private donations from families, churches, and corporations to meet unmet needs in homeless services, housing, and education. Since 2008, Joppa has helped over 450 individuals and families get off the streets. More than 80% of these men, women and children remain in housing today.
