Who we are: Covenant House Toronto changes lives by providing the widest range of services and support to as many as 300 youth a day. A national leader, we educate and advocate for change by influencing public policy and delivering prevention and awareness programs.
Our doors are open to youth 16 to 24 regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or the circumstances that have brought them to our doors.
Our shelter: Our 24/7 crisis care provides for homeless youth’s immediate needs – a safe, clean bed, food and clothing. Our 96-bed shelter is open to youth 16 to 24, including two designated crisis beds for young women who have experienced sex trafficking or exploitation.
Our programs: More than a place to stay, we provide 24/7 crisis shelter and transitional housing on-site and in the community, as well as comprehensive services including education, counselling, health care, employment assistance, job training and after-care.
