Our Impact 


Nights of
Shelter Provided



Visits to Youth Development Center

Youth Served

Dedicated to providing young people experiencing homelessness with shelter and safety, trust and community, and a better tomorrow.

Covenant House Illinois was my safety net when I had nowhere else to turn. It’s like a really big stepping stone – you just gotta be ready to take that step.

Cody, CHIL Alum


We believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in Illinois deserves shelter, food, clothing, education and most importantly, opportunity.


CHIL provides a safe harbor and full continuum of wraparound supportive services to Chicago's most vulnerable populations. Our programs and services meet the physical, emotional, educational well-being of young people, as they build their path to independence.

We create tailored solutions for each young person that goes beyond short-term support and housing. Our approach equips youth with the resources they need to overcome obstacles and challenges. Every Youth who comes through our doors receives case management, housing,  workforce development, job placement, post-secondary support and more.

Personalized Care
