Covenant House Michigan, which has locations in Detroit and Grand Rapids, provides shelter to homeless youth, including those who have been abused, neglected, and trafficked. The faith-based organization serves as these individuals’ only home, and it has stayed open during the pandemic. Currently, the Covenant House is seeking donations for its Lift Our Hearts 24/7 campaign, which was created in response to COVID-19. It is not accepting any in-kind donations due to the pandemic. Along with housing, the organization offers educational programs, job training and placement, medical services, and mental health and substance abuse counseling. Covenant House’s outreach team patrols the streets of metro Detroit daily to find youth living in abandoned houses, cars, and on the streets. The organization’s Rights of Passage program offers a two-year independent living program that helps participants further their educations, save money, learn how to manage time and finances, and gain life skills. Each resident develops a plan that outlines goals and leads to successful independent living. Each are assigned a counselor and a mentor.
