Covenant House California (CHC) is a non-profit agency whose mission is to reach out to at-risk homeless youth living on the streets and offer them hope and opportunities to turn their lives around. They help abused or neglected youth who have nowhere else to go. A large number have been thrown out of their homes while others have aged out or left the foster care system with no family, no support system, and no one to turn to.
Since 1988, CHC has impacted the lives of more than 150,000 homeless youth out of their Los Angeles and Bay Area facilities. Some of their core services include: food, shelter, crisis intervention, medical care, employment and educational training, job referrals, as well as other critically needed services.
