For over 25 years, Covenant House Greater Washington (CHGW) has served as the region’s leading non-profit throughout the area in protecting, supporting, and transforming the lives of youth ages 18-24 experiencing homelessness, disconnection, and exploitation. CHGW has provided a safe harbor and wrap-around supportive services to one of the area’s most vulnerable populations. The programs and services offered to young people help them to get back on track in achieving housing, career, and economic stability. These are some of their inspiring stories.
"I was truly blessed by the people of Covenant House when they came and said they had a place for me. Since then I have done more than ever before to work on getting my life back on track and my relationship with my family is growing."
"I highly recommend Covenant House to other young troubled youth because I really think this place can put you back on the right track to a better life. Here you learn discipline and you get to clear your mind so you can think about your goals and where you are going."
"Covenant House has always been more than just a homeless shelter for youth, it has been a place where young people can come and pick up the pieces of their lives and start to rebuild on a foundation of independence and self-respect. For that, I will always be grateful."
