Covenant House New Orleans
What is Covenant House?
Covenant House is a shelter for homeless and atrisk youth between the ages of 16-22
The Crisis Center is open 24 hours a
day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Help
begins with a hot meal, clean clothes, a shower, a
bed and medical care. Only after these immediate
needs are met does the Covenant House staff begin
to address the more complex problems of these
youth in crisis.
CHNO offers more than just a roof over their head;
they also provide medical and behavioral health
services, educational support, job support, life skills
classes, daycare, case management, etc…
How Did We Help?
City Church presented our movie “Will You Be
Ready?” to the youth here at Covenant House in
The movie discusses personal life choices for youth,
and how to deal the the pressures of society.
Not only did we send the message that these kids
have the opportunity to change their paths, but we
also created meaningful relationships and made an
otherwise regular evening special
We brought snacks, refreshments and door prizes to
make the night much more than just a movie night!
Ongoing Plans at Covenant House
City Church has already established a great
relationship with Covenant House
We plan on continuing to do events with the kids
there; besides this movie night, we have presented
another movie, taken a group for beignet’s at Café
Du Monde, hosted a Vision Board making event,
among other activities
Many of our members have made real connections
with them, so we look forward to all we can do to
help CHNO in the future.
To make the holidays special, we are planning a gift
drive, a concert, and other activities for our new
friends at Covenant House.
How will Covenant House Benefit from
the Super Service Challenge?
By winning the Super Service Challenge, Covenant
House will continue to serve homeless and at-risk
youth from New Orleans and all over the country.
Not only will they continue to practice open intake
(CHNO vows never to turn anyone away), but they
won’t have to worry about how to keep their doors
open for everyone who walks through them.
A grant from the Super Service Challenge will
ensure Covenant House will never turn a lost soul
