Dear Friends,

Night of Covenant House Stars, presented by Delta Air Lines at North Javits in New York City, was an amazing night that celebrated our young people and reaffirmed our organization's commitment to preventing and ending youth homelessness.

On this special night we heard from inspiring Covenant House alum Nick, who shared part of his journey. “When I got to Covenant House, someone greeted me, cooked me a meal, and showed me to a room, my room,” said Nick. “Having a safe place to sleep and regular meals allowed me to think about my next steps. I took advantage of everything Covenant House offered. Today, my business, Right Connections, saves distressed properties and helps landlords provide rentals that young adults, especially, can afford. Now I’m a husband, father, business owner, and homeowner. Thank you for taking this journey with me and countless other young people.”

We heard from Octavia, another Covenant House alum. “While I was at Covenant House, despite my circumstances, I really believed in what I could become, and I knew that my journey through Covenant House was just that — a journey to go through, not to stay in,” said Octavia. “I knew I was meant for greater things. With support from Covenant House, I graduated high school, and moved into my first apartment. Then I got into the rigorous Delta Career Readiness Program. Once I graduated, I interviewed with Delta and was hired full-time. Now I travel the world!”

Night of Covenant House Stars, and support from friends like you, lift up the dreams and talent and drive and passion of people like Nick and Octavia. We can never thank you enough for believing in our young people.

So many people shared their time and talent to make Night of Covenant House Stars an evening to remember. Special thanks to our partners at Delta Air Lines; to Eric Hutcherson, our Board Service Award recipient; to Jalen Brunson, our Beacon of Hope recipient; Stephanie Ruhle; to Ariana DeBose, Rachel Brosnahan, Audra McDonald, John Dickerson, Jason Ralph, Adrienne Warren, and Javier Muñoz for always, always being there for our young people. And to Tank and the Bangas for a rousing finale!

I also want to thank all our board members, staff and volunteers, and all our supporters in 34 cities across six countries. A night like this one doesn’t happen without all of us together, living and working and caring in community with each other. Together, we have the honor of walking with our inspiring young people as they pursue the great promise of their lives.
