Covenant House Missouri serves young people ages 16-21 who are living without homes by providing a safe place to stay, shower, eat, and receive medical attention for up to two years.
To protect and safeguard all youth with dignity and love and to offer the structure necessary for youth who are homeless and disconnected to pursue a life of opportunity.
