Leaving a Legacy of Love
Dr. Richard and Patricia Meehan have been some of the most committed
supporters of Covenant House California since its inception in the 1980’s.
A dentist who served many of the CHC youth when he volunteered his
time at the LA Free Clinic, Richard has helped countless homeless youth
and adults in his lifetime. Blessed financially through his career, Richard
decided that he wanted to use some of those resources to ensure that
homeless youth can continue to receive medical and dental care for many
years to come. And in 2016, the Meehan’s placed a multi-million dollar
gift into a Charitable Remainder Trust, with Covenant House California as
the beneficiary! In recognition of the Meehan’s incredible generosity, CHC
unveiled the Dr. Richard and Patricia Meehan Medical Clinic at CHC’s
Hollywood campus on March 19, 2016. During a moving and joyful
ceremony, which included his six children and 20 grandchildren, Dr.
Meehan humbly shared his belief that “those of us who have been blessed
have a responsibility to help those in need”. What a remarkable legacy
the Meehan’s have given to the thousands of youth who have yet to come
through CHC’s doors!
A Charitable Remainder Trust, like the Meehan’s gift, is just one of the
many ways that CHC supporters can leave a legacy for homeless youth,
through planned giving. To learn more about planned giving with CHC,
