Crescent City Classic

On SATURDAY, MARCH 30, 2024, 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 youth. And if you raise $200, your discounted $45 registration fee is refunded in full—so you run for FREE!


Sleep Out

On NOVEMBER 21, 2024, over 200 business and civic leaders will give up their beds for a night, showing their solidarity and raising critical awareness & funds 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.

Want to join us for the 2024 Sleep Out? Email us to let us know!

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.



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!
