Faith Community Volunteers
Live. Pray. Serve. Together

Faith Community was founded in 1977 by a group of men and women who committed themselves to living out the mission of Covenant House in service to youth in crisis. Today, Faith Community members come from all over the United States and Canada to serve for a year at one of our Covenant House sites. Their experience is about serving others and the foundation of this service is love.

Faith Community

Program Details

Faith Community offers a unique yearlong opportunity for college graduates to serve homeless youth full time at Covenant House, live with other program volunteers, and share in daily prayer and reflection.

Participants serve for 12 months at a Covenant House located in one of these fantastic cities: New York, NY; Atlantic City, NJ and Anchorage, AK.  Most volunteers serve at Covenant House as Resident Advisors, Youth Advisors, or Case Managers on one of our youth residential floors.

In addition to the service, community, and prayer aspects of our program, Faith Community provides many benefits to our volunteers, including health insurance and ample living stipends.
