Strides for Pride

    All together now: “Love is Love move with the Cov”

    Strides for Pride is a week-long challenge to log 40 minutes of activity — running! walking! biking! swimming! dancing! — per day in support of LGBTQ+ youth overcoming homelessness at Covenant House.

    Why 40 minutes? Because 40% of all young people facing homelessness in the United States identify as LGBTQ+.

    The funds you raise go directly to providing food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, education, legal aid, and loving care to youth overcoming homelessness at Covenant House California.

    As part of the challenge, we ask you to set a goal of raising $120 for Covenant House, in honor of LGBTQ+ youth who are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than their non-LGBTQ+ peers.

    Register now and be ready to join the challenge on June 23-30.

    Registration Fee: $25 in May for early bird, $30 in June


    From individuals, to companies, to faith-based organizations, Covenant House needs your help! Unlike many volunteer opportunities, we want you to do what you love to do… just do it with our youth, either individually or with a group of your friends or co-workers.

    Some ideas include:

    + Providing haircuts to our youth
    + Donating your time to teach our young people a new skill like gardening
    + Hosting a tie-dye party or beach day

    Learn more about our opportunities, and how you can make a difference in the lives of youth overcoming homelessness and trafficking!
