Covenant House Month
Youth homelessness has become a
national epidemic, with almost 45,000 young people in Canada who have no place
to call home sometime during a year. February is Covenant House Month and our
goal is to raise awareness of youth homelessness. Join us today to spread the
word that it is time to end youth homelessness. Together we can give all of our
youth the chance to live a life of opportunity and hope.
February is Covenant House Month. The month has been recognized by the
Ontario government. Throughout this month, we will shine a light on the issue
of youth homelessness, as well as help raise much-needed funds to serve the
homeless youth who come to us.
February 2nd marks the 35th
anniversary of our opening. A pioneer in the care of homeless youth, we have
grown to become a national leader and advocate. Since 1982, we have offered our
services and support to more than 90,000 youth.
We need your help to make a difference.
Here are just a few of the things you can do:

Covenant House changes the lives of
at risk, homeless and trafficked youth. More than a place to stay, we serve as
many as 250 young people every day through 24/7 crisis shelter and transitional
housing programs on-site and in the community and comprehensive services,
including education, counselling, health care, employment assistance, job
training and aftercare.
