I Support Covenant House

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 55 People

    Right Around The Corner

    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...

    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...

    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...
