Mission statements

For 25 years, Covenant House New Orleans has provided a safe haven for homeless, runaway and at-risk youth ages 16-21. Located on the edge of the French Quarter, we shelter and care for neglected, abused and exploited kids from the New Orleans area and from across the United States. Covenant House is governed by a local, volunteer Board of Directors and staffed with experienced, dedicated professionals and volunteers. We have touched the lives of over 17,000 youth, providing them with food, shelter, clothing, medical attention, individual and family counseling, educational assistance, vocational and job training, life skills and so much more. We seek to rebuild and reunite families whenever possible, or offer youth the opportunity and the tools they need to build healthy, independent and productive lives.
