Covenant House Florida, Inc.
August 28, 2009

I have never seen homelessness in this light before. Too often, we sit and think about the homeless being simply a tired old man sitting on the side of the road with a cardboard sign and beer nearby. However, being a full-time volunteer here at Covenant House Florida has taught me that homelessness is not just for that stereotype, but that it can affect anyone--including our youth. Youth are our future, and I am thankful to be a part of an organization that is helping homeless and runaway youth to build a better future for themselves. This residential facility has provided shelter to thousands of youth over the years, and I hope that it continues to be around for as long as its needed to fight against the cycle of poverty.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the attitudes and hearts of the youth change and open up as they stay at the organization.

Ways to make it better...

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

give them a new facility.

More feedback

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

the ability to share myself with these youth and make a positive impact on their lives.

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

friendly, energetic, and hopeful for these youth.

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

change the face of homelessness in Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando--and other areas of Florida.

Ways to make it better...

there were more funds to provide for more activities.

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

a decrease in donations, and the size of the facility.
