Covenant House is a tremdous organization. I thought I had a good idea of what they do until I had a full tour of the NYC shelter. Then I realized how much I didn't know and HOW MUCH more they do than I could have every imagined! Covenant House helps kids get off of the streets by not only providing food and shelter but by teaching these young people skills that will last them a lifetime. Its one thing to provide shelter for those in need, its an entirely different thing to provide them with the tools to rebuild their lives and become better people. And don't forget the assistance they provide for babies the of homeless females who otherwise could be on the streets with a hungry baby.

The Great!

I've been able to meet Covenant House residents who feel safe for the first time in their lives and alumni who are now working, supporting themselves and living in their own home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope they could provide shelter to more homeless youth in more cities around the US.

Covenant House is a greenhouse where kids can thrive and grow after being damaged by difficult life experiences. With love and practical help, the staff helps them follow their dreams. Hard work and respect by the staff help the kids in countless ways. Bravo!

Nothing is more profound to save these kids from abuse. Nothing hurts a humanity to see these innocent ones hurt and wounded by the one who should be their caretakers. Covenant House stands for them, telling them that "we are on your side" and "God is on your side", "Take courage Kiddo we will fight together, we will stand together". Every child saved is a victory to humanity.

I have a great family and I thought everyone did too. But lots of kids don't. Some of them are at Covenant House. For my last birthday, we asked everyone to bring a pair of pajamas to give to the kids. Then I went to Covenant House with my Mom and we gave the pajamas to the kids there. The teachers were really nice and the kids were having fun. It's a great place.

I've donated since its inception. It is vital to children that are being abused at home or have been evicted, often due to a new spouse for their parent. Left on the streets, they have little choice is ways to survive due to child labor laws. And a easy prey for hustlers, pimps & drug dealers. Covenant house rescues these kids and gives them a chance to finish their education and live a better life. Sometimes literally rescuing them from the arms of the pimps, etc.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

better educate the children it rescues and provide better facilities. It would also be able to run its vans more.

I've been a supporter of Covenant House since it opened. It is tragic to read the stories of so many young people who have endured so much abuse and suffering through the treatment or neglect of their own families or the people they have known living on the streets. What a blessing Covenant House has been in reaching out and finding these young people. What a blessing it has been in housing them, feeding and clothing them, and helping them find meaning, purpose and love in their lives. I appreciate so much the information I receive from Covenant House keeping me advised of their work and accomplishments. I pray God's blessing on those who work at the Covenant Houses throughout the USA and on all the children benefiting from their care.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing I've helped Covenant House reach out and literally save the lives and the souls of so many abused, hurting and troubled youth.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

establish more hmes, reach out to more young people and save more lives. It could enable young people to find meaning and purpose in their lives and enable them to contribute in building a more loving and caring society.

I have beening making donations to Covenant House for approximately five years or so.I know that this organization makes a big difference in the lives of the kids it impacts. I formally myself having my entire family being homeless know what their experience is like. But I am glad that just as I had my family through those trying times they have a family at Covenant House. They don't have to face it alone. What's sad is so many homeless kids fall victim to the streets but through this organization they can have hope. I know that its God's grace that keep such a charity running. It is God the gives them the ability to truly help. It is God who allow these sort of organizations and all involved to be an extension of his hand and grace. To be able to reach those who may be losing hope, who needs to feel the hand of his grace.

The only change I would make is that more people would be aware of the need and hopefully they would reach out.I would not really make any changes to the organization itself.

What I have enjoyed most about my experience with this nonprofit is what they do. It helped me to see that so many others have gone through what I have been through. I feel like you really truly see the difference our donation makes rather its large or sm

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

So far my experience with any and all staff has been one of compassion and resilance. They have always seemed to work tirelessly to get out their message and needs. They are angels on earth.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

If the organization had 10 million bucks it could make an even greater difference and impact. I feel they would have the resources to truly reach even more kids. They could do more for the kids they help. Maybe be able to help with educational expenses.

Ways to make it better...

My experience has always been the best so I have no suggestions of how it could be better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The biggest challenges facing this organization is likely the lack of financial support. Funds are likely weighing thin as the economy is taking quite a hit for some time now. So I feel like mone and space as well as supplies are the biggest challenges.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love this organization. It is close to my heart because I know the plight of the homeless. I hope that maybe they could expand a bit beyond just the homeless teen and pull in the homeless families, children, as well as the elderly.

I have been a contributer to Covenant House for over 25 years because they help homeless children physically and spiritually. Their results have been outstanding helping this group that is so often ignored by society. Government programs do not reach many of these homeless children and encourage dependance rather than self sufficiency.

Help more homeless children get back on their feet.

I have been a regular contributor for many years. Life on the streets is terribly difficult and dangerous for a child. Covenant House sends out vans with volunteers offering a sandwich and a cup of cocoa and, most important, the willingness to listen. The kids who accept their offer are given a warm bed, clean clothes and a chance. The volunteers are wonderful and there are many amazing stories of children who have been helped by their efforts.

The stories of kids who have turned their lives around with the help of Covenant House.

Save children in other parts of the world as well as the US.
