We who recognize God's providence and fidelity to his people are dedicated to living out his covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in his humanity is the visible sign of God's presence among his people, so our efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and our kids.
Covenant House is a crisis shelter for homeless and runaway youth up to 21 years of age.

Great program helping homeless and at-risk young adults get started on the right path toward independent success. I have worked with dozens of current and former Covenant House youth, as well as made several client referrals. This is by far one of the most thorough programs in the Houston area for young adults who are driven and want to open doors in their lives. Their program is all-encompassing offering clothing, toiletries, street outreach, job counseling, and shelter to young adults.
