The mission of Covenant House Illinois is to provide youth (ages 18-24) experiencing homelessness with shelter and safety, trust and community, and a better tomorrow.
Covenant House Illinois currently offers a daytime youth development center and twelve units of interim crisis housing, and we have plans to grow and increase the number of beds and services we offer in years to come. When you walk through our doors, we can offer you immediate medical attention, food, and a place to rest.
We make sure our youth receive access to mentorship, guidance, mental health services, life enrichment programming, and more. It’s our calling to develop relationships based on trust between those who need our help and our staff.
Together, youth and their case managers work to establish a plan and goals to help them overcome homelessness and, ultimately, put them on the path home.
Since opening the doors in February 2017, over 500 youth have come to Covenant House Illinois through more than 14,500 visits for resources and refuge.
