Helping Homeless Kids in Houston

Founded in Houston, Covenant House Texas opened its doors in 1983 and for over 30 years, has continued to help kids in crisis with residential programs, community services, and outreach efforts designed to keep young people off the streets.

Our 80-bed emergency shelter is available on a 24-hour basis to youth in need. We work with dozens more who come in for walk-in services and serve hundreds of homeless kids and at-risk youth through our outreach and prevention efforts. Covenant House Texas is honored to serve over 99,000 free meals every year though our Community Services Center.

In 1988, a health committee was formed, beginning HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention programs. We offer anonymous HIV testing, confidential HIV testing, STD testing, prevention counseling, individual ongoing counseling and health education/risk reduction, and HIV prevention education.
