About Covenant House Greater Washington
Covenant House Greater Washington’s mission is to empower, safeguard and serve youth experiencing homelessness, disconnection, and exploitation in the Greater Washington region. The wrap-around supportive services provided to opportunity youth include housing, workforce readiness, job placement, and drop in services.
We create tailored solutions for each young person that goes beyond short-term housing and support. Our approach equips youth with the resources they need to overcome common obstacles and barriers. Aside from housing, youth receive workforce readiness, job/career placement, post-secondary support, case management, mental health support, drop-in services, child development center (for youth with children), and more.
