Share the Plate – November – Covenant House

Covenant House Pennsylvania is much more than a shelter. They provide an array of services for homeless young people, including a first-class clinic, staff to help with going to college and finding a job, and one-to-one support to help young people plan, stay on track, and achieve their goals.

They also provide housing for longer periods to give young people time to find work, learn important skills, and save money – giving them the best possible chance of achieving independence. This is a program for young people in desperate situations age 21 and under. Our goal is to help homeless young people become healthy, happy, responsible, productive, and ultimately independent adults.

Covenant House Pennsylvania is a program of transformative change, an opportunity to move forward, often from lives of trauma and neglect. From the very first moment, we approach our young people with unconditional respect and support. We strive never to turn anyone away.
