Who we are: Covenant House Pennsylvania (CHP) is a program for young people in desperate situations age 21 and under. Our goal is to help young people facing homelessness become healthy, happy, responsible, productive, and independent adults. CHP has two locations in Pennsylvania: Philadelphia and York, where we serve a total of about 3,200 youth annually, and all our services are free.
Our shelter: CHP’s shelter in Philadelphia is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We welcome all youth with unconditional love and respect, and strive never to turn anyone away. We respond to youths’ immediate needs for safety, food, clean clothes, and medical care, and we offer them a whole program of transformative change and an opportunity to move their lives forward.
Our programs: Young people can access short-term emergency care in Philadelphia through CHP’s street outreach program, drop-in services, and emergency shelter, and they can access our on-site clinic and educational and vocational services. Our transitional housing program helps young people hone the skills they need for independent living.
