Covenant House of California is a non-profit organization with locations in Hollywood, CA and Oakland, CA whose mission is to help homeless and trafficked youth by providing shelter and sanctuary for those who have nowhere to go. CHC believes that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in California deserves shelter, food, clothing, education … and most importantly, to be loved.
Now serving over 1,800 youth a year, CHC has served nearly 190,000 homeless youth since we’ve opened our doors. CHC provides a full continuum of services to meet the physical, emotional, educational, vocational, and spiritual well-being of young people, in order to provide them with the best chance for success in independence.
In the last 12 months, nearly 4,000 volunteers donated their time, talent, and a piece of their heart to serve our young people at Covenant House California. These amazing individuals and groups show our young people that there are adults in this world that truly do care for them. By assisting the professional staff and offering essential services to our young people, volunteers play a critical role in Covenant House California’s success. It is only with the support of our community that we can offer so many opportunities for healing and growth to our young people.
