Description: We are a homeless shelter for the ages of 18-21. We provide other services as well, such as educational and job training, legal services, and behavioral health treatment.
We open doors of opportunity and hope to homeless youth through three core programs: Outreach, Crisis Centers, and Supportive Housing, each playing a specific role in the journey from homelessness to a bright future. These programs were designed to connect, protect, nourish, heal, and transform lives.
Our Outreach teams are on-the-street experts in finding and connecting to homeless youth and those can help us reach them, ensuring that local homeless, runaway and trafficked youth know that we're here if they need us.
Our Crisis Centers quickly address the immediate needs of those who come through our doors and help them to stabilize the issues that have rendered them homeless.
Our community-based supportive living programs help homeless youth learn how to successfully live on their own.
We know homeless youth need more than a place to stay. Our holistic set of coordinated robust services under our one roof help young people to address the challenges they face and build a happy, healthy and independent adulthood for themselves.
In 1989, Covenant House began its work in New Jersey by providing basic services to homeless youth on the streets of Newark and Atlantic City. Over the past 25 years, we have grown by creating more services and enhancing the quality of those services. Our focus is always on meeting the needs of our youth, needs which never stop growing. Our outreach program has expanded its reach to Paterson and Cumberland County. While outreach continues to provide the essential services that established our presence in New Jersey two decades ago, we have expanded to forming partnerships with local schools, organizations, and government agencies to make sure all youth in the state are served. Tonight alone, we will give 132 homeless adolescents and 19 of their babies throughout the state a safe and caring place to live in North and South Jersey. Another dozen will be found by our outreach teams on the street or walk through the doors of our Crisis Centers for the first time. Recently, we opened a program especially for mentally ill homeless youth called Nancy’s Place in Montclair. In response to the special needs of this unique population, the program will be staffed 24 hours a day, and offer the intensive care these young people need to become self-sufficient and independent.
