Why Support Us

Covenant House Toronto, part of an internationally recognized child care network, has offered opportunity and hope to over 90,000 homeless young people over more than 35 years.

As Canada's largest homeless youth agency, Covenant House Toronto changes lives by providing the widest range of services and support under one roof. A national leader, we educate and advocate for change to help at-risk, homeless and trafficked youth.

Our front-line staff are among the country’s leading experts, who help young people deal with problems like abuse, neglect, addictions, mental illness, prostitution and gangs.

Our programs range from runaway prevention, crisis intervention, life skills training and counselling to support to help young people as they move to independence through education and job assistance.

We rely primarily on donors who share our mission and vision for these young people. This gives us the flexibility to develop and deliver services for our kids as needs emerge.

In the words of one of our youth, “Covenant House gives me what I need for today and for tomorrow.”
