Housing and After-care

Many of the youth we serve lack a safe, stable place to call home. These young people face challenges that can interfere with their sense of self and their hopes for the future.

We provide youth with a safe space to call home, which is essential in their journey towards stability.

Every young person will find acceptance, love and shelter at Covenant House. Our housing programs give youth the recovery time they need to get back on their feet. Our after-care services give youth the tools to maintain independence over the long run.

Transitional housing

Finding and keeping permanent shelter can be a long process. Covenant House offers a variety of transitional housing options where youth learn to live independently.
