Covenant House Outreach
Since 2012 we have been working with Covenant House.
Covenant House provides housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness. They help young people transform their lives and put them on a path to independence.
They work with homeless youths age 18 to 21. Our community really come out to help with supplying food every couple of months.

The Pacheco and Jones-Hewitt family along with friends hosted the Thanksgiving Dinner this year. We appreciate this family coming together every November to fellowship with the young adults at Covenant House.

Please let us know if you are interested in helping out.

Thank You to the Pacheco / Jones-Hewett Family
