Who we are: At Covenant House Alaska (CHAK), our doors are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for youth ages 13-20 facing homelessness and human trafficking. All our services are free of charge. We offer young people safety and rest, and help them get their lives on track. We are here for youth, to provide support, guidance, encouragement, and a listening ear.
Our shelter: CHAK offers young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness a safe place to stay and get help. With our open intake policy, no youth who comes to our door is turned away. We are never too full to welcome them in, nor too busy to talk. We meet youths’ immediate needs for food, clothing, and a warm bed, then help them build a foundation of safety and trust so they can build their future.
Our programs: Young people can access short-term emergency care through CHAK’s street outreach program, drop-in services, and emergency shelter. Our Youth Engagement Center offers them access to health care, educational achievement, employment, housing assistance, and enrichment activities. And our transitional and supportive housing programs help young people find and keep a home of their own.
