I Support Covenant House

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 56 People

    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...

    Home Sweet Home

    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...

    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...

    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...
