Covenant House Matters
Out there on the street, homeless youth have few choices: Hopelessness. Deprivation. Jail. Or, Covenant House. When everyone and everything else in their young lives fail them, we are there to save them from the streets—with unconditional love and a door that's open 24/7. Covenant House provides the food, shelter and care they desperately need right now, as well as the support and life skills they need to put their lives on the right track.
Some of the kids who come to us have run away from abusive or neglectful homes, some have been rejected by their families due to teenage pregnancy or revealing their sexual orientation, some have “aged out” of foster care, some have escaped the city's notorious sex trafficking trade, and others grew up in homeless or poverty-stricken families who couldn't afford to care for them once they turned 18. They all share one thing in common; they have turned to Covenant House for help.
Covenant House Georgia is the state's only shelter to serve both males and females ages 18 to 21 with short-term crisis care for youth ages 12 to 17. The beds at our shelters are always full and the waiting list is always long. We need your help, the youth on the streets of Atlanta need your help.

More importantly, you can see what you can do to help.
Many of the youth who come to CHGA for help have endured neglect, abuse, abandonment and other adverse circumstances in their young lives. Covenant House Georgia is devoted to providing these individuals with a safe and nurturing environment where their medical, educational, psychological and day-to-day needs can be met. Won't you do the same?
