    Covenant House stands for so much that is good (from their website): "Homeless kids have rights. They have the right to a home… the right to food… the right to guidance and an education… the right to be free from sexual, emotional, or physical abuse...

    Support These Kids

    Reading these kids stories is really touching and makes me feel fortunate to be where I am. I mean, can you imaging sleeping in a cold, concrete stairwell (http://www.covenanthouse.org/kids/ana-crisis-care), or in a cemetary (http://www.covenanthouse.org/kids/antione...

    The Strong Divide

    The situation of homelessness is worldwide and in all the major cities.  When I visited London I observed several cases of people kipping near the tube, the grim reality of any city is destituion.  This reminds me of Orwell's novel "Down and Out in Paris in...

    Right Around The Corner

    After doing some research on Covenant House, I just realized abruptly, that I was parked right in front of its building just about one month ago. I remember trying to guess its main function based on its logo. A soft dove. Hands outreached. Sketched freely. Colors of hope...

    Closest To Homeless I Ever Got

    Once, when I was in 2nd grade. I missed the bus to go home, and the school administration couldn't contact my parents. I was worried that my parents would never come and pick me up or forgot about me; it was so traumatic I still remember it today. Being lonely is a very scary...

    Close To Home

    Just came across this group on the site.  I don't know much about Covenant House, but this is a charity I can get behind.  Living near Haight Ashbury (in San Francisco), I see everyday the effect of homelessness on youth.  Just a little bit of help can go a long...

    I Support Covenant House Through Sixx...

    "Running Wild In The Night" is Nikki Sixx's charity, which is Auspiced through Covenant. Sister Tricia's postcards always used to make me smile. I was unable to donate for a time, but next month, I'll start again. Bless those kids always!

    Being Homeless

    I've often thought about what it would be like to have to sleep on the street. As a woman, this feels especially threatening. And as a young teenager, the level of fear is even more complex. I am thankful I never had to go through that experience. I've had a caring family, but...

    Home Sweet Home

    Having a place to call home is something I've always taken for granted, but reading through the stories of these kids who grew up without a home make me appreciate what I have. I'm glad that places like Covenant House exist, and hope that other homeless kids, teenagers, and...
