Covenant House
October 29, 2014

Instead of providing "three hots and a cot" like traditional shelters, Covenant House offers this wide array of services which help homeless kids become self-sufficient.

I think that's what sets them apart from so many organizations. They don't just provide a temporary fix to the situation... they invest a tremendous amount of time in each young person's life so they transform into successful adults. There is job training and placement, life skills classes, independent living coaches and so much more. But most importantly, Covenant House's loving staff is ready to step in and be the family that most of these kids never had.

Covenant House
June 12, 2013

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.
