From our Executive Director:
For most of us, family is a symbol of unconditional love, support, community, and sanctuary. To me, Covenant House embodies all of those things.
Every aspect of the work we do with our youth is guided by these principles, and every success story is a direct result of them.
For Covenant House youth, the road to a more secure adulthood begins with the first of these principles, immediacy.
It was only a year ago that Covenant House Illinois opened its doors to homeless and at-risk youth in Chicago, and in that year, we’ve met hundreds of youth, built strong community partnerships, and felt an outpouring of support for our mission from across Chicago and Illinois.
