Pinky grew her career internally throughout her time at Covenant House: “I started volunteering 23 years ago. I didn’t have you work experience, but I had the heart and gut to work with young people. I believe in the mission, and the values align with my own. I found my passion for serving at-risk youth. This is the most rewarding work I’ve ever done in my life. Twenty-three years later, every day feels like my first day at work.”

Freeman started at CHV as a cook and has prgressed his career within. He has been a Team Leader for 5 years: “I have had a great experience with CHV, the mission and work we do. The agency gives staff opportunities for growth and internal promotion from wihin; without that, I don’t think I would be a team leader today.”

Dave has been working as a Cook at Covenant House for 13 years: “I’m so happy to be at CHV. I was working in the restaurant industry before, and I knew being a cook at CHV would be very different. It is so rewarding to personally connect with the youth in our community by providing a delicious and nutritious meal for them. I am currently in my 13th year and every day brings me joy and satisfaction.”
