Covenant House Pennsylvania

Founded in 1999, Covenant House Pennsylvania (CHPA) is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year—ready at a moment’s notice to offer safety and wellness to Philadelphia’s most vulnerable youth. CHPA’s doors are open to all young people who need help, regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
The moment youth walk into any of CHPA’s three facilities in PA, our team moves into action to mitigate the crisis—giving them the food, shelter, and health care they need to feel safe. Once our youth have settled into CHPA and their situations have stabilized, our comprehensive and entirely free support helps them realize their fullest potential.
We have seen time and again – over 20 years of sheltering and caring for young people – the healing power of a stable, loving environment to inspire a fresh start in their lives. CHPA empowers young people to finish high school, start college, gain employment, live independently, and ultimately step out into the world knowing they are prepared to be successful.
