Give Power To Youth Experiencing Homelessness To Overcome Adversity
This March we all faced an unprecedented challenge with the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak. Please help support our Giving Tuesday campaign, and ensure that youth and children experiencing homelessness have the necessary resources to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times.
Covenant House Florida serves runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth under 21 in Fort Lauderdale and 18-24 in Orlando, including teen parents and their babies.
Each year, we reach hundreds of kids in Fort Lauderdale and Orlando via street outreach, crisis shelters, and transitional housing projects making Covenant House Florida one of the largest private agencies serving runaway, trafficked, and at-risk youth who are experiencing homelessness in the state of Florida.
Covenant House Florida provides supportive programming such as job readiness training, workforce development, GED education, life skills training, mental health counseling, mom and baby programming, and onsite health services.
We are still open 24/7, 365 days a year, accepting trafficked, at-risk, and runaway youth who have nowhere to go and no one to turn to.
Our middle school and high school students are working through online school and need extra support from our education department and caseworkers.
Mental health counseling is critical during this time so we can support our youth to face adversity with strength and power.
Our frontline staff have built robust activity and educational schedules so our youth can continue to learn and grow.
Our independent living program youth have lost jobs so Covenant House Florida is ensuring that their rent and utilities are paid and food is delivered to ensure that their health and mental wellbeing is not severly impacted.
Dollars raised will provide direct support to our youth through programming designed to lift them up out of homelessness and into a healthy and stable independence.
