Covenant House serves hundreds of runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth (ages 22 and under). Since 1987, we have provided over 20,000 kids with food, emergency shelter, clothing, medical attention, individual & family counseling, educational assistance, vocational & job training services, life skills, short & long term housing, and so much more. In the past four years, our average daily census has increased from 45 to over 150 kids per night.
"We who recognize God's providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love."
As a private non- profit, we are dependent on charitable donations for 80% of our funding.
