Covenant House Wish List

Clothing Donation and Volunteer Update

We are currently accepting a limited amount of gently-used clothing for our youth ages 16-22. We ask that you include in your donation only washed seasonally- and age-appropriate clothing items at this time. Donation drop-offs are usually easiest in our administration lobby during regular business hours (M-F, 8am-5pm).

Questions or concerns about donations? Email us at chnoinfo@covenanthouse.org

In accordance with the policies of the City of New Orleans, we are allowing a limited amount of in person volunteer opportunities. Additionally, as of July 2021, we are requiring that all volunteers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to volunteering on-site. For more information on availability or virtual volunteer opportunities please contact volunteerNOLA@covenanthouse.org.

We are always in need of items that benefit our residents. Our core group is 220 youth ages 22 and under and their children. Check out our Amazon Wishlist to learn about the items in high demand. 

To ensure a clean and safe space for all of our residents, we are unable to accept any previously used household goods, bedding, towels, toys, stuffed animals, mattresses, pillows, makeup, or toiletries. We can accept a limited number of gently-used furniture donations. These must be coordinated ahead of time–please send photos & dimensions of furniture to chnoinfo@covenanthouse.org.

We are located at  611 N. Rampart, New Orleans, LA 70112. Donations can be dropped off on weekdays during our regular business hours (8am-5pm) in our administration building lobby. Please contact Haley Khoury at hkhoury@covenanthouse.org or 504-584-1132 with any questions or concerns. 

Safety and the privacy of our residents and their families are our primary concern. To maintain our status as a sanctuary, donors are not allowed to personally distribute gifts directly to our residents.

If you would like to coordinate a large donation or a donation drive, please contact Haley Khoury at hkhoury@covenanthouse.org.
