Structure is one of our five core principles

Structure  - Street life is very unstructured. Young people on the street never know where they will sleep or how they will get their next meal. We provide the structure and stability of legitimate and carefully articulated expectations without a lot of rules and regulations. This helps alleviate anxiety and allows them to focus on planning their next steps.

You can provide  structure and stability to a  young person.  Donate Now.

Thanks to safe & supported housing a youth begins to paint again!

A youth recently came forward to one of our Housing Workers offering to share some of their art work on our blog. The young person has used a variety of Covenant House services and now has safe, supported housing and is doing well. When the young person was on the streets their painting supplies would often be stolen but now that they have a safe place to live the youth has gotten back into painting.

Our thanks to the young person for sharing their incredible art work!

Youth creates amazing meal for Rights of Passage Community Dinner

We had an amazing Community Dinner recently at ROP in honor of National Aboriginal Month.

One of our youth who is Aboriginal took the lead in planning, prepping and cooking the meal. The youth also said a few words in their Native language to bless the food and thank the ancestors for the land that they cooked and were eating on. She also explained the history of the 3 Sisters Dish which has beans, squash and corn in it. The youth also whipped up homemade strawberry ice cream for desert. One of our amazing Covenant House cooks contributed homemade bannock to the meal as well.

Everyone said the meal and whole evening was incredible. Congratulations and thank you to the young person for the delicious meal and for sharing their culture with us.
