Covenant House California is dedicated to serving all God's children, with absolute respect and unconditional love, to help youth experiencing homelessness, and to protect and safeguard all youth in need.

Covenant House California (CHC) is a non-profit youth homeless shelter that provides sanctuary and support for homeless and trafficked youth, ages 18-24. We believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in California deserves shelter, food, clothing, education … and most importantly, to be loved.

Now serving over 1,800 youth a year, CHC has served over 186,000 homeless youth since we've opened our doors. CHC provides a full continuum of services to meet the physical, emotional, educational, vocational, and spiritual well-being of young people, in order to provide them with the best chance for success in independence.
