We can never say it enough: thank you for your support of our young people. Covenant House would not exist without it.
84% of our budget comes from private gifts.
We work very hard to be good stewards of your generosity. In the past six years, we have reduced our average daily cost to provide comprehensive 24/7 care for our youth from $238 to $89 – while greatly expanding and enhancing our programs and services.
Please know of our prayers of gratitude for all you do for our Covenant House family.
We welcome donations of gently used clothes, shoes, belts and accessories at our site on 611 North Rampart Street. Please keep in mind that the majority of our youth are between the ages of 16-22.
You may stop by Monday through Friday between 8:30am-5pm. Please view our wish list to see our most needed items.
We also accept donations of gently used household goods and furniture on a case by case basis (please call first).
For more information, contact Palmer at 504-594-1184 or email@example.com.

The Sleep Out is a “modern day retreat.” Our brave kids are your retreat directors. You will be forever changed by their inspirational stories, hopes, and dreams.
On March 31st, 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!
Runners & walkers forgo the $45 race fee by committing to raise just $200 – 100% of which directly supports our kids.
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 are endless! Just like our kids’ potential.
Whether it’s with friends, colleagues, or your fellow parishioners, there is always a way for you to help our kids.
Groups can do physical service projects, fun activities with our residents, make and serve a meal, and much more.
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.
Our interns gain valuable on the job experience while providing our staff with much needed support.

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.”
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.
CHNOLA is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Much more than “just a shelter,” we provide supportive counseling and the tools needed to help our youth become independent, productive members of our community.
