Mission Statement

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 children.


Covenant House Washington (CHW) is the Washington, D.C. affiliate of Covenant House International, the nation's largest privately funded nonprofit organization responding to the needs of young people who suffer from homelessness, abuse and neglect.
