More than 2,000 young people sleep in a Covenant House bed each night.

Homelessness is not a character trait and the young people living at Covenant House are not defined by their housing status. Each one of them has a unique story and a unique dream, and it is our job to help them move forward on a path towards independence. Read stories from just a few Covenant House youth:
