Tulane’s Cowen Institute estimates there are 26,000 “opportunity youth” in the New Orleans area - who are neither employed nor enrolled in school. Thousands of them are also homeless, with no safe place to lay their heads at night. Neglected, abused, and exploited - they are all good kids who deserve a chance. Most suffer from severe trauma following years of physical and/or sexual abuse - and exposure to the violence of the streets. Basic needs like a hearty meal, a warm bed, and safe shelter are true luxuries. Covenant House is their safe haven.
"Home is where children find safety and security, where we find our identities, where citizenship starts. It usually starts with believing you're part of a community, and that is essential to having a stable home". Matthew Desmond
