St. Louis-area Orthodox teens Sleep Out to support Covenant House's fight against teen homelessness.
The YES! (Youth Equipped to Serve!) program is a multi-parish effort to help our kids grow into leaders in serving people in need. The teens themselves chose Covenant House for their first effort. Please support them.
Every night, hundreds of unaccompanied youth are homeless in the state of Missouri. As the only nonprofit organization dedicated to serving homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth in the city of St. Louis, Covenant House Missouri provides a place of unconditional love, hope, and support for our community’s most vulnerable youth. Every bed is full nearly every night. These young people cannot be sent home because Covenant House is their home. And will remain their home for as long as they need.
To meet this crisis, Covenant House Missouri openly youth experiencing homelessness between the ages of 16-24. We provide solutions to guide them from homelessness to hope through outreach, residential services, educational programs, job training and placement, medical services and mental health counseling. Ultimately, Covenant House Missouri’s goal is that every youth finds stable housing and moves towards an independent, sustainable future. Our support is their lifeline.
We are giving up our beds for one night so young people can sleep safely at Covenant House.
We will sleep in uncomfortable places for one night in solidarity with thousands of young people who have nowhere else to go do every night. The Sleep Out is a way to show these young people that we care.
