Since opening in 1988, Covenant House has provided a safe space for youth experiencing homelessness and supporting at-risk youth, including young parents and human trafficking survivors, by providing housing and shelter services, education, employment, and enrichment programs.
Katherine Carlton shared of CHA, “The last four years of my life have been dedicated to working with our underserved youth through Job Corps. This no-cost program is a natural fit for a partnership with organizations such as Covenant House, so we can reach the ultimate goal of moving youth to stability, independent living, and careers. Every young person deserves a chance to reach success and organizations like Covenant House provide that opportunity.”
Tonia Burrough added “Every child, young parent, or human trafficking survivor deserves a safe place to eat, sleep, receive clothing, and medical attention – especially if they are homeless. These children are the next generation, and they deserve an opportunity to become functional adults in society.”
On November 17th, CHA held the 2022 Great Alaska Sleep Out, Covenant House’s annual fundraising event. Many members of the Chugach leadership team participated, Chugach’s participants raised more than $80,000 and braved the cold weather in support of the Covenant House.
