Our youth face some of the greatest challenges in our community. With the help of the Covenant House New Orleans family, they are receiving the unconditional love and relentless support they need to begin healing and start building brighter futures.
Last year, we provided comprehensive services to 896 youth. Our Crisis Center cared for 480 young people. We expanded the number of off-site independent apartments available for individuals and families, including graduates of our Rights of Passage transitional living program. We also provided supportive housing for our youth with chronic mental illness and disabilities.
60% of our young people come to us from New Orleans, 26% from around Louisiana, and 14% from across the country.
