In the community day and night to get youth off the street and into a safe and caring environment…
OUTREACH PROGRAMS ARE MORE THAN DRIVING THE STREETS
Covenant House outreach extends beyond vans. Our outreach staff members attend committee meetings and sit on mayoral councils, and we visit local schools, hospitals, and community group events – all to educate anyone who might encounter a teen in need so he or she can recognize the signs of homelessness and youth trafficking.
YOUTH OUTREACH EXTENDS TO OTHER ORGANIZATIONS
Outreach staff work collaboratively with local child welfare organizations not only to tackle the problem of youth homelessness within their community but also to introduce these organizations to our exceptional crisis care and transitional living programs. Working collaboratively allows us to foster change on the local, state, and even federal levels – and at the same time, partnering organizations are more likely to refer at-risk youth to Covenant House.
