Covenant House Florida provides a safe haven for runaway and homeless teens by providing shelter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Youth show up at the shelter’s doorstep sometimes with only the clothes on their back- pain emotionally and/or physically.
Covenant House’s caring staff take in these needy youth and provide them with nourishing meals, clean clothes and a safe place to sleep. The youth are offered a list of comprehensive services (G.E.D. preparation classes, employment assistance program, parent and children development classes, and pastoral ministry counseling) to help them either become reunified with their families or develop the skills necessary to live independently.
Currently, the Orlando facility can shelter up to 24 youth; this includes young parents and their babies through the Crisis Shelter Program.
