Covenant House doors are open all day and night, every day of the week.
Since 1972, we've opened our doors to more than 1.5 million young people.
More than 2,000 young people wake up in a Covenant House bed every day.
Who We Serve
We provide housing and support services to youth facing homelessness. We help young people transform their lives and put them on a path to independence.
We are open 24/7 in cities across North and Central America. Our strengths-based programs are designed to empower young people to rise and overcome adversity, today and in the future.
How We Serve
Our Programs Put Youth Experiencing Homelessness on a Path to Independence. Each year, millions of young people across the countries where we operate face a period of homelessness. Our services and programs help those youth overcome the harsh experience of being unhoused. At the same time, we advocate for public policies that address the roots of the crisis, focusing on justice, safety, and opportunity.
"We envision and work toward a world where every young person has a safe place to sleep and the love, respect, and support they need to build a future of their own."
We are steadfast in our commitment to building a present and future of safety, healing, housing, and opportunity for young people facing homelessness. We are committed to providing unconditional love, absolute respect, and relentless support for each young person who walks through our doors.
We welcome all youth without judgment or conditions, meeting their immediate basic needs of food, clothing, medical attention, and a safe place to sleep, at no cost.
We acknowledge the bravery it takes for young people to walk through our doors. We offer them a welcoming and safe environment based on absolute respect, unconditional love, and relentless support, where we believe in and encourage their resilience.
We value authentic relationships, honor the voice of our youth, and model caring relationships based on trust, respect, and honesty.
We provide stability and consistency for young people to pursue their great promise.
We honor that young people hold the power to their story. Through relentless engagement we foster confidence and encourage them to believe in themselves and make informed choices about their lives.
How We Operate
We are committed to helping every young person who needs us 24/7, 365 days a year. Our programs and services are fueled by:
- Donations from people who believe every young person deserves to be protected and loved.
- Philanthropic institutions who seek to transform community outcomes.
- Partnerships with businesses leveraging their scale to empower a just society.
