We can never say it enough: thank you for your support of our young people. Covenant House would not exist without it.
79% 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.
Please view our online wish list to see our most needed items. To ensure a clean and safe space for all of our residents, we are unable to accept any previously used bedding, towels, toys, stuff animals, mattresses, pillows, makeup, or toiletries.
We can accept donations of gently used furniture and household items on a case by case basis. These items help our residents who are transitioning from our onsite services into their own apartments. If you would like to arrange a furniture donation, please send a list of items, their dimensions, and a few pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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!
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 youth.
For larger groups (10-20), help us make Covenant House feel and look like home to our onsite residents. Projects include landscaping, cleaning, and beautification of our campus.
For groups of 10 or fewer, please consider participating in our Prepare & Share a Meal program!
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 prior to signing up for volunteer opportunities.
Our interns gain valuable on the job experience while providing our staff with much needed support. We currently support graduate students who are working towards a social work degree and are seeking a place for their field practicum.
Please note that all of our intern positions for graduate students for the Spring 2020 semester are currently full.
If you are currently in an undergraduate or associate program and are interested in intern opportunities in nonprofit administration, please email a resume & cover letter to email@example.com.
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.
