Volunteers are an invaluable asset to our staff. Whether they are working at our crisis desk, conducting mock interviews with our residents, or coming with a group to serve a meal or lead activities for our residents, Covenant House is a better place because of them.
We ask that all volunteers be at least 25-years of age, and that those participating in any individual volunteering opportunities working directly with our resident commit to a minimum of 6 months of service.
All volunteers must pass a background check, complete our online application and attend volunteer orientation. We also ask that volunteers make a $25 donation to cover the cost of processing the background check.

Please note that we cannot validate court mandated volunteer hours.

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.
