Covenant House Missouri (CHMO) is a non-profit organization that empowers homeless, runway and at-risk youth to live independently and become contributing members of our community. With open doors and open hearts, CHMO provides a full suite of services designed to educate, train, mentor and support homeless teens.
Because it is what we are called to do. Our principles of immediacy, sanctuary, value communications, structure and choice are carried out in our programs every day and enable our youth to feel safe, focus on the future, and make smart choices.
Covenant House Missouri is an affiliate of Covenant House International, which began in 1969 in a small apartment in Manhattan's East Village. From this modest beginning, Covenant House has grown into the largest shelter program for homeless kids in the Americas. Throughout more than three decades and across 21 sites in the United States, Canada and Central America, the mission has remained constant—to give all our kids the unconditional love and respect they may have never felt, and to help them reach their potential.
When Lauren came to Covenant House Missouri, she was visibly angry. As a victim of domestic violence and lacking strong family relationships, Lauren did not have the tools to appropriately manage her emotions.

Here at The Cov, we work to empower homeless, runaway and at-risk youth to live independently and become contributing members of our society. For us, this means meeting them where they are, in crisis, on the streets. We then surround them with a network of services and opportunities to support them and help them soar to independence.
Beyond providing emergency shelter for youth in crisis, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, our goal is to help them get to stability. We can help work through family issues when possible and connect them with education, health, and employment resources.
Our Transitional Living Program (TLP) offers safe, stable housing to single males and females, ages 16-21, for up to 24 months. The self-contained apartments are located within our Center for Youth building and give the residents easy access to our programs and staff, when they need it.
Our Outreach Team patrols the streets of St. Louis looking to help homeless youth living in abandoned cars, buildings or other unsafe areas. Through our own programs and by collaborating with other agencies, we can offer them access to food, shelter, clothing, blankets, shower/laundry facilities.
Our long-term commitment to our kids means that we want to impact more than just today. We are here to teach them life skills and help them transition to successfully living independent lives. Through our Transitional Living Program, we are able to offer long-term living arrangements in suites which include two bedrooms, a common living area and a kitchenette.
