Covenant House California (CHC) is a non-profit youth homeless shelter that provides sanctuary and support for homeless and trafficked youth, ages 18-24. We believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in California deserves shelter, food, clothing, education … and most importantly, to be loved. Now serving over 3,200 youth a year, CHC provides a full continuum of services to meet the physical, emotional, educational, vocational, and spiritual well-being of young people, in order to provide them with the best chance for success in independence.
“Covenant House California is dedicated to serving all God’s children, with absolute respect and unconditional love, to help youth experiencing homelessness, and to protect and safeguard all youth in need.”

“At 17 years old, I was living on Skid Row with no plan, no future and no hope.” Derrick recently shared as he shook his head in disbelief, “I’m so grateful that time in my life feels like a distant memory.”
Derrick heard about the Cov in June 2015 from a friend that lived here and decided to take her advice and walked through our doors the next day. Derrick had no idea what to expect but knew that there had to be more to life.
