Donate

Covenant House Toronto is Canada’s largest youth shelter. We offer more beds, youth programs and services under one roof than any homeless youth shelter in the country, all administered with unconditional love. When you donate to Covenant House, your gift will be carefully stewarded to have the greatest impact on the youth we serve. Together with our extensive community partners, our work within the areas of prevention, solutions and advocacy has a significant impact on the lives of homeless youth both within and outside of Toronto.
