I am sleeping out again on November 16th as an expression of solidarity with nearly one million homeless youth across the nation and here in New Orleans. For one night, I can give up the comforts of home knowing it can bring warmth and hope to young people who need it most.
In the past six years, Covenant House New Orleans' average daily census has grown from 45 to 170 kids per night. They are ALL good kids desperately in need of help getting off the streets. Covenant House’s first goal is to try and reunite them with family; if not possible, they provide assistance finding a job, saving for an apartment, and much more.
Covenant House is the HIGHEST RATED non-profit in Louisiana (by Charity Navigator, the nation's premier charity evaluator), so you can be confident that your support would be used effectively and efficiently. They are also 79% dependent on private donations to continue their critical work.
Thank you for considering a gift to help us reach our goal.
