Covenant House is committed to keeping our doors open to provide 24/7 comprehensive care & support to homeless youth and children in our community. In early November, we were caring for 162 youth and children, the most kids ever in our history. Now, in the midst of the Coronavirus, we have an average of 212 young people in our care – and expect dozens more. We will continue to feed, clothe, and shelter our brave young people, while also meeting their physical and behavioral healthcare needs during this critical time.
Many of our young people survived the trauma of Hurricane Katrina before their 5th birthday. This crisis represents a desperate new challenge. In the last week, 85% of our youth have lost their jobs. Despite all that they have experienced, they are filled with hope and promise. Their resilience is truly remarkable.
Please consider making a special gift to support them in this time of extraordinary crisis.
