Who we are: Covenant House New York (CHNY) serves youth ages 16-24 facing homelessness or human trafficking. Our doors are open to all young people who need help, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression. Our services are based on trauma-informed principles, and our holistic approach helps youth take steps toward real independence. All our services are free.
Our shelter: CHNY’s shelter is located in midtown Manhattan. Our doors are open all day, every day. Our Welcome Center and Youth Shelter team lovingly welcomes youth and meets their immediate needs for a hearty meal, a shower, fresh clothes, and a safe place to sleep. We then help young people develop a personal plan, with health, employment, education, and other goals.
Our programs: Young people can access short-term emergency care through CHNY’s street outreach program, drop-in services, and emergency shelter. Our on-site clinic meets their health needs, and our Covenant Works program helps them navigate the world of employment. Rights of Passage, our transitional housing program, empowers youth to build the skills they need to live independently.
