There is place where the doors are open 24/7 365 days a year -- and any young person in need can walk in and be greeting with unconditional love, safe shelter and life-changing services. That place is called Covenant House.
Youth homelessness has become epidemic in this country, but thanks to Covenant House more than 51,00 kids escaped life on the streets last year. If you visit www.covenanthouse.org, you will see that this organization has a 40 year history of providing lasting solutions that help kids transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Isn't that what America needs right now?
The work that Covenant House does in Latin America is hands-down the best work I've seen done with street children anywhere in the world. In Honduras they serve more homeless kids than the government, and they NEVER shut their doors. Who else in the world takes on the expense of being completely funded by individuals (thus the high fundraising costs) so that they have the flexibility to do this? No one. It's so much easier to accept grants and shut your doors when you reach your expected results or when the grant ends, but Covenant House has a real commitment to these kids. Stunning work, I promise you. Keep it up, Kevin Ryan & team, and keep those doors open.
