The number of people experiencing homelessness in America has increased for the last two years and continues to grow.
This year, 4.2 million young people will find themselves without a safe, stable place to sleep. They may be escaping years of physical abuse, a dangerous human trafficking network, a drug-addicted parent, or a house overflowing with rage. More than 5,000 of these kids will lose their lives to the streets.
Every one of these young people has a story, and every one has a dream. Covenant House provides housing and supportive services so that youth facing homelessness can transform their lives and get on a path to independence.
About Covenant House
Covenant House was founded in 1972 with the simple, profound mission to shelter and care for kids facing homelessness.
Today, we are much more than a homeless shelter. We believe every child deserves not only a safe place to sleep, but also hope for a brighter future. That’s why the youth who walk through our doors are met with a full array of supportive services, from basic needs, like food and shelter, to long term support, like education, legal counseling, and job training.
