For Parents For Youth

Tonight more than one million kids will sleep outside on America's streets.

Our Principles

Immediacy - Young People come to Covenant House Missouri in crisis. Immediately and without question, we meet their basic needs - a nourishing meal, a shower, clean clothes, medical attention, and a safe place away from the danger of the street.

Sanctuary - The young people who come to Covenant House Missouri are often frightened and mistrustful. Covenant House Missouri protects them from the perils of the street. Young men and women can grow only when they feel safe and secure.

Value Communications - Lying, cheating, and stealing are common survival tools on the street. Covenant House Missouri teaches by example that caring relationships are based on trust, respect, and honesty.

Structure - Street kids never know how they will get their next meal or where they will sleep. Covenant House Missouri provides the stability and structure necessary for these young people to focus on building a positive future.

Choice - Young people often feel powerless to control their lives, and fall into a self-defeating cycle of failure. Covenant House Missouri encourages young people to believe in themselves and to make smart choices about their future.
