Growing up in Greenwich Village, I knew Covenant House as a beacon of hope. For over 40 years it has welcomed thousands of vulnerable kids off the streets of our great cities and provided them with a hearty meal, warm bed, safe shelter and the opportunity to create a brighter future.
Having met some of the extraordinary kids and staff at Convenant House, I am honored to support the efforts and mission of this essential institution by sleeping out.
Please donate to their futures.
