For homeless teens, basic needs like a hearty meal, warm bed, and safe shelter are true luxuries. Instead of knowing the joys of childhood, homeless youth often face the life-or-death dangers of living on the streets. Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in the Americas providing food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and essential services to homeless, throwaway, and runaway kids in 31 cities throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America.
We strive to move each young person who walks through our doors to independent adulthood not unlike loved ones who cheer their favorite athlete to the finish line. We cannot make such an impact without the help of the dedicated athletes on the Home Team who take on the challenge of endurance competition not only for themselves, but also to help homeless youth.
