Every year, more than two million kids in America will face a period of homelessness.

At Covenant House, we provide more than just an escape from the streets.

All a kid wants is a family. But for runaway children like Emily, living at home can be a nightmare. "I was raised around guns, gang violence, drugs, alcohol," Emily says, her eyes brimming with tears. She was just nine years old.

Emily was lucky to find Covenant House. But so many homeless kids are still running scared, starving and utterly alone.

You have the power to end this nightmare of homeless childhood. Every gift will help bring a child off the streets. Save a child's life today!

Founded 40 years ago, Covenant House is the largest privately-funded charity in the Americas providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care and essential services to homeless, throwaway and runaway kids.

Kids like Emily are precious in our eyes and in the eyes of God. But we need your support to give all homeless children the love, guidance and care they need to transform their lives. Please make a gift to Covenant House today.
