“Many youth enter Covenant House Washington abused, discouraged, and with with a since of being forgotten. Our young people deserve the opportunity to regain the hope and confidence that the realities of the streets may have taken away from them. Preventing youth trafficking starts with young people knowing their self-worth, the makeovers and character building interactions will help them achieve that goal” – says Dr. Henson, President & CEO, Covenant House Washington.
