Who we are: Covenant House Illinois (CHIL) welcomes young people ages 18-24 facing or at risk of homelessness into our daytime Youth Development Center and on-site interim housing. We provide a safe, caring environment and access to basic necessities. Our doors are open to all youth, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
Our on-site interim housing: CHIL is in a period of expansion and in 2018 opened our first 12 on-site interim housing units, where we offer youth a safe, patient, and loving place to stay and get help. Our collaborative agreements with leading agencies provide our young people with access to an array of services to support them on their way to achieving independence.
Our programs: Young people can access short-term emergency care through the diverse services of CHIL’s Youth Development Center and our on-site interim housing program. We are working toward adding more interim beds plus a transitional housing program, Rights of Passage, with wraparound support services. We will update this information as plans advance.
