    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...

    To Be Young And Without A Home...

    So the issue of homelessness is not something I have always given the most thought to... honestly.  I have lived in LA and I now live San Francisco. I live in a part of town that has a lot of services, free clinics, halfway houses and so forth.  I am very much used...

    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...

    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...

    The Strong Divide

    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...
