A New Place of Hope
Five formerly homeless young men will now have a place to call home as we cut the ribbon at our new Rights of Passage program in Asbury Park.
Joined by our partners at Interfaith Neighbors, Covenant House President Kevin Ryan and New Jersey Executive Director Jim White cut the ribbon at our new Rights of Passage program in Asbury Park on Thursday January 18, surrounded by over 100 of our Covenant House friends and supporters.
Five homeless young men will now have a place to call home and will receive the love and support they need to build independent lives.
"This place of hope was a dream seven years ago," said Covenant House President Kevin Ryan. "It is now a reality thanks to our partners at Interfaith Neighbors. Today we celebrate as a community the young lives that will rise and thrive in this house."
Christian, one of our first residents, spoke with courage about suddenly losing his mom to a heart attack and finding himself homeless without any family. With the help of Interfaith Neighbors, Christian was able to find a job and his way to us at Covenant House.
Thank you to every one of our supporters for making this dream a reality and helping us get more young people off the streets to safety.
