Sleep Out

On November 21, 2019, 200 business and civic leaders will spend a night on the streets, showing their solidarity and raising critical funds ($500,000) for our youth.

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.

Crescent City Classic

On April 20th, 2020, 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 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.

Potential Summer 2018 interns should email their resumes and the intern application below to Palmer Mills.


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.
