Helping Homeless Kids in Atlanta

Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) serves homeless and trafficked youth. When everyone and everything else in their young lives fail them, we are there to save them from the streets—with unconditional love and a door that's open 24/7. Covenant House provides the food, shelter and care they desperately need right now, as well as the support and life skills they need to put their lives on the right track.
Some of the young people who come to us have run away from abusive or neglectful homes, some have been rejected by their families due to teenage pregnancy or revealing their sexual orientation, some have “aged out” of foster care, some have escaped the city's notorious sex trafficking trade, and others grew up in homeless or poverty-stricken families who couldn't afford to care for them once they turned 18. They all share one thing in common; they have turned to Covenant House for help.
CHGA's two overarching goals are 1) to provide safe, accessible housing to youth living on the streets and 2) to offer them encouragement and services that empower them to achieve self-sufficiency and a productive adulthood.
