For millions of homeless kids, basic needs like a hearty meal, warm bed, and safe shelter are true luxuries. Instead of knowing the joys of childhood, every day these kids face the life-or-death dangers of living on the streets.
Covenant House was founded in 1972 with the mission to help homeless youth escape the streets. Today, Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in the Americas providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and essential services to homeless, throwaway, and runaway kids.
Covenant House doesn't stop at offering an immediate safe harbor to homeless youth, we strive to move each kid forward down the path to an independent adulthood, free from the risk of future homelessness.
