Our Crisis Program welcomes homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24.
At Covenant House’s Crisis Program we welcome youth who are at-risk for or are experiencing homelessness between the ages of 16 and 24. We provide compassion and support as caring adults, and a chance to start fresh.
When they arrive, young people have often experienced trauma. They are scared, sick, hungry, and exhausted. Our first priority is to meet their basic needs:
There are 63 beds in our short-term Crisis Program:
Along with safe, supported housing, young people receive food, clothing, and hygiene supplies. They can also receive employment and education supports, access to Registered Clinical Counsellors and Social Workers, and help to transition to independence when ready.
Young people can stay in the Crisis Program free of charge for as long as they need to because getting through a crisis takes as long as it takes. When out of their crisis, many young people apply to our long-term supportive transitional housing program, Rights of Passage, which allows us to provide them with support in an environment that feels like home.
Your gift today can help us provide unconditional love and absolute respect for young people in our Crisis Program
