Covenant House Reviews
What people don't realize is that Covenant House welcomes kids who truly have no other place on earth to go. These are kids who runaway from abuse by the very people who should be loving them. They runaway from traffickers and pimps. And sometimes they run away from the unavoidable circumstances of having to survive alone on the streets.
From the leadership of Kevin Ryan down to the receptionist who greets young people when they take that courageous first step through the doors of Covenant House, this organization is wholeheartedly committee to saving lives.
God bless everyone who works at Covenant House and God bless the young people who find solace there.

Okay, I'm glad to see that Cov. House does such good work, but I can't support an organization that sends me, unsolicited, a package containing x-mas cards with envelopes, a pen, address labels, x-mas stickers, and a little paper gift bag. These items cost money and waste resources, and are clearly aimed at making me feel obliged to reciprocate, in cash. I send thousands of dollars to charities every year, and I am especially interested in operations, like Covenant House, that deal directly with persons in need. But I feel more comfortable supporting organizations that solicit donations in a straightforward manner. Address labels and other gimmicks are just that -- gimmicks; a worthwhile cause should speak for itself.

Use fundraising solicitations as an opportunity to show prospective donors the importance of Covenant House, its successes, and its need for funds. Discontinue the practice of mailing address labels and other items.
