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.

Fundraise

Sleep Out

In November 2021, 200 business and civic leaders will give up their beds for a night, showing their solidarity and raising critical awareness & funds ($600,000) for our youth.

 Your participation in the Sleep Out sends an important message to our youth: they matter. Whether you take part in person of through our virtual livestream, your experience will be both memorable & eye-opening.

Crescent City Classic

On April 16th, 2022, 100 charity runners and walkers will lace up their tennis shoes for our kids to enjoy New Orleans’ premier road race—a fun and easy to way to support our young people!

Charity runners & walkers commit to raising just $200 for our kids. And if you raise $250, your discounted $40 registration fee is refunded in full—so you run for FREE!

Do It Yourself

Whether it’s a yoga challenge, a bowling outing, or a company-wide “dress down day,” Do It Yourself (DIY) Fundraising can be an effective platform to spread awareness and engage with your friends and family for their support.

The possibilities for creative fundraisers are endless! Just like our residents’ potential.

Volunteer

Groups

Whether it’s with friends, colleagues, or your congregation, there is always a way for your group to help our youth.

For larger groups (10-20), help us make Covenant House campus feel like home through landscaping, cleaning, and beautification of our campus.

For groups of 10 or fewer, consider participating in our Prepare & Share a Meal program! 

Please note that these opportunities are currently paused due to COVID.

Individuals

Covenant House is always looking for dedicated volunteers!

From working with our residents directly to keeping things running smoothly behind the scenes, volunteers are an invaluable part of the Covenant House family. 

All new individual volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation and complete our onboarding process prior to signing up for volunteer opportunities. Volunteers must be at least 25 years old. Sign up for an orientation at the link below.

ELIN Program

Our Emerging Leaders In Nonprofits Program allows students to gain valuable on-the-job experience while providing our staff with much needed support.

Additionally, ELIN interns will complete our Professional Development Program, guided by Covenant House staff at biweekly meetings. We are able to verify intern hours for degree requirements. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to offer paid internships.

Pray

But for the Grace of God…

Please pray for our youth – they are really good kids.

With God’s grace, we can help them turn their lives around and have futures filled with hope and peace.

Please be assured of our prayers each day for you, your family, your children and grandchildren.

Please let us know if you have any special prayer requests.

Your prayers are the most important thing we can ask of you.

“God does not love you because you are good; God loves you because God is good. God does not love you because you are good; you are good because God loves you.”

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek;
to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
