Each year, millions of young people are shut out of their homes. They wind up on the streets, crashing on a friend’s couch, or finding shelter wherever they can — stairwells, abandoned buildings, public parks. From their first night of homelessness, they become targets for unscrupulous adults who seek to exploit them.
Covenant House exists to help young people build a bridge from homelessness to hope. We believe every child deserves love and respect and tools to build the future of their dreams. Our houses in 31 cities across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Central America offer a safe bed, nourishing meals, loving guidance, and vital services to help youth transform their lives and achieve stability and independence.
Covenant House is the largest primarily privately funded charity in the Americas devoted to helping young people overcome homelessness. Each year, we reach more than 88,000 children and youth, and have helped more than 1.5 million young people transform their lives since our founding in 1972.
