Covenant House New Orleans Courtyard

Covenant House New Orleans (CHNOLA) serves youth ages 16-22. Our services are free and our doors are always open. Our team of caring professionals meets the immediate needs of youth in crisis and then develops an individualized plan for each young person to address their complex problems and help them take steps toward a productive and independent future.

Our Shelter

When youth walk through the doors of our shelter, CHNOLA provides them with a hot meal, clothes, a bed, caring staff, and so much more. Individual medical care is provided on-site within 72 hours. We develop a personalized case plan with each youth and work with them every step of the way to reunite them with family, when possible, or develop the tools they need to live independently.

Our Programs

Young people can access short-term emergency care through CHNOLA’s street outreach program, drop-in services, and emergency shelter. Our transitional housing program, Rights of Passage, helps youth hone life skills and prepares them for independent living. When youth are ready, we help them identify and move into affordable housing, while continuing to support their ongoing development.
