Covenant House Month

Youth homelessness has become a national epidemic, with up to 40,000 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.

Throughout Covenant House 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 37th 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 95,000 young people.

We need your help to make a difference.

Here are just a few of the things you can do:

  1. Spread the word. Tell your friends, family, co-workers and government representatives about Covenant House Month and the issue of youth homelessness. Share our message with hashtag #CHMonth through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin or your favourite social media site. Visit our pages today to get the latest posts.

  2. Donate or fundraise. We rely on donors like you for more than 80% of our budget. Donate here to help us offer life-changing services to the youth who come to us. For some fundraising ideas, click here.

As Canada’s largest agency serving at-risk, homeless and trafficked youth, Covenant House Toronto changes lives by providing the widest range of services and support to as many as 300 youth a day. More than a place to stay, we provide 24/7 crisis shelter and transitional housing on-site and in the community, along with comprehensive services, including education, counselling, health care, employment assistance, job training and aftercare.
