Covenant House New Jersey

We who recognize God's providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in His humanity is the visible sign of God's presence among His people, so our efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and our kids.

Providing loving care, shelter, and vital services to homeless youth throughout the state. Covenant House began more than 40 years ago when six young runaways were given shelter from a snowstorm, in the lower east side of Manhattan.


  • A Continuum of Care: We open doors of opportunity and hope to homeless youth through three core programs: Outreach, Crisis Centers, and Supportive Housing, each playing a specific role in the journey from homelessness to a bright future. These programs were designed to connect, protect, nourish, heal, and transform lives.
  • Outreach: Our Outreach teams are on-the-street experts in finding and connecting to homeless youth and those can help us reach them, ensuring that local homeless, runaway and trafficked youth know that we're here if they need us.
  • Crisis Care: Our Crisis Centers quickly address the immediate needs of those who come through our doors and help them to stabilize the issues that have rendered them homeless.
  • Supportive Housing: Our community-based supportive living programs help homeless youth learn how to successfully live on their own. 
  • Supportive Services: We know homeless youth need more than a place to stay. Our holistic set of coordinated robust services under our one roof help young people to address the challenges they face and build a happy, healthy and independent adulthood for themselves.
  • South Jersey Programs: Our Residential Crisis Center welcomes kids 24-hours-a-day offering a compassionate welcome, a hearty meal, a shower, a fresh set of clothes, a warm bed, and other basic needs and vital social services. The shelter, also offering services for moms with young children, provides a safe haven for youth to live while they stabilize their crises and work on a plan to transition to a stable living environment where they can continue to progress in their life goals.
