Get Your Community Involved to Help Homeless Youth

The key to success in changing government policies and funding is through grassroots advocacy and Covenant House’s advocates are our chief resource for making positive changes in Washington. By joining our network of advocates, you’ll receive Action Alerts in your inbox when important issues affect at-risk youth are debated on Capitol Hill. In 5 minutes or less, you’ll be able to write your elected officials and tell them their constituents care about the lives of young people living on the streets.


Advocates Make a Difference

Since 1972, Covenant House has been committed to protecting and safeguarding all youth, especially those without a place to call home. And with more than 40 years of experience in working directly with this population, Covenant House is ideally suited to champion the interests of young people in crisis at the federal level and ensure that their concerns are not only recognized but also addressed.


Take a Stand for Homeless Youth

Covenant House established a full-time presence in Washington, D.C., to drive our advocacy agenda with the administration and Congress and to bolster our involvement in coalitions. Today we are a member of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Board of Directors of UNICEF and have taken on a prominent role in The Campaign for U.S. Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). But we need your help to make our voice in Washington even louder!
