When the late Cardinal Carter found kids sleeping outside his downtown office, he rallied community support to open Covenant House to serve these vulnerable youth.
Our doors officially opened in February 1982 as Covenant House Toronto—the second international site of the highly recognized childcare agency Covenant House International. Today, the 31-site network spans from Alaska to Latin America.
For nearly 40 years, our agency has maintained steadfast dedication to our mission: supporting the vulnerable youth who come through our doors with absolute respect and unconditional love.
Since the day we first opened our doors, Covenant House Toronto has offered opportunity and hope to more than 100,000 young people.
