There is no single cause for the growing youth homeless crisis. Every kids's circumstance is unique and so are the problems they face.
Every day, young trafficking victims arrive at our shelters. Desperate and alone, homeless kids are easy targets for this horrific industry. That's why we're on the front lines, fighting to protect them.
We don't just save kids, we invest in their futures. Throughout a child's journey at Covenant House, our caring staff is there to provide the support needed to transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
Our work doesn't stop at direct care – we're also defending the rights of vulnerable kids at the local, state and federal levels. Stand with us and learn how we enact change through crucial advocacy work.
What's the Sleep Out about? It's about one night outside spent in solidarity with homeless kids. It's about raising critical funds and awareness across the Americas. And most important, it's about showing kids the kind of unconditional love that all children deserve.
