Covenant House Florida, Inc. Overview
CHF's mission, shared by its international affiliates, began in 1969 in New York City with a vision that kids should not be alone and on the streets. Formalized in 1972, Covenant House developed its cornerstone "open intake"--24-hour acceptance of any youth seeking initial help.

CHF began services in 1985 in response to strong community support for services for disconnected kids who had nowhere to go for help.
