Covenant House has “houses” in  30 cities throughout the United States, Canada, and Latin America. And inside each of these facilities are all the love, care, and vital resources needed to help a young person break away forever from a life on the streets.

Covenant House Michigan is a sanctuary for young people who have nowhere else to go. Most are victims of abuse and neglect. Since 1997, they have provided help to more than 54,000 youths who often feel abandoned by those who were supposed to care about them the most.

Covenant House Michigan sits on a 5.3 acre campus that houses two residential programs, a dining and recreation center, and job development center. Here they provide shelter and support programs to help homeless kids overcome the hurdles of unemployment, inadequate education, violence, drugs, and gangs.

Each year in the U.S. alone, as many as 2 million youth experience a period of homelessness, and every year more than 5,000 of these young people lose their lives to the streets. Their hope and promise are lost forever unless they find someone – like Covenant House – to love and care for them. Click here for more information about Covenany House.
