Covenant House strives to be a voice for homeless kids – because they simply can't speak up for themselves. By raising public awareness through the media, we hope to influence community action and government policy on the problem of youth homelessness around the world.



Covenant House New Jersey partnered with Take the Cake to host a gala Prom Night for our Covenant House kids in Newark.  Watch local news coverage of this special evening here:

An Amazing Day on Capitol Hill

06/19/2015 - 1:45pm

From a special screening of the movie Selma to a meeting with American hero Rep. John Lewis,  35 Covenant House youth from across the country shared an inspiring day on Capitol Hill they will never forget.

A Night of Broadway Starscould not happen without the amazing support of our event sponsors -- individuals and entire companies that have invited our kids into their lives, and into their hearts.  When our kids see that so many people really do care about them, their spirits soar, and there is nothing they cannot achieve. 

Covenant House’s “A Night of Broadway Stars” gala honored country music star Martina McBride with The Beacon of Hope Award, in recognition of her work on behalf of the homeless and trafficked youth living at Covenant House on June 9th at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center. The event included a special performance by six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald as well as performances by homeless youth who reside at Covenant House, and raised over $1 million to help care for homeless youth.
