Covenant House Florida provides a safe haven for runaway and homeless teens by providing shelter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Youth show up at the shelter’s doorstep sometimes with only the clothes on their back typically bruised and hurt emotionally and/or physically.
Covenant House’s caring staff take in these needy youth and provide them with nourishing meals, clean clothes and a safe place to sleep. The youth are offered a list of comprehensive services (clinical counseling, G.E.D. preparation classes, job readiness assistance, parent education and pastoral ministry counseling) to help them either become reunified with their families or develop the skills necessary to live independently.
Currently, the Orlando facility can shelter up to 37 youth including young parents and their babies through the Crisis Shelter Program and the Independent Living Track Program.
