Eddie, Alumni at CH California - homeless shelter in los angeles

Covenant House California (CHC) provides sanctuary and support for youth ages 18-24 facing homelessness and human trafficking. Our programs and services are designed to advance youths’ physical, emotional, educational, vocational, and spiritual well-being in order to provide them with the best chance for success in independence. All our programs and services are free of charge.

Our Shelter

In Hollywood, CHC’s Safe Haven shelter immediately provides for youths’ basic human needs and urgent medical care. Young people receive a nutritious meal, take a shower with new personal care products, receive new clothes, and sleep in a warm, safe bed. They are then connected to supportive services that will help them thrive.

Our Programs

Young people in Los Angeles can access our short-term emergency care through CHC’s street outreach, drop-in center, and emergency shelter programs. Young people may also participate in our transitional housing program, Rights of Passage, our Supportive Apartments Program and Rapid-Rehousing.
