History: Thousands of young adults in Georgia experience sex trafficking, exploitation and homelessness each year. Since 2000, Covenant House Georgia has given food, shelter and support services to lift many of these young people out of abusive and neglectful relationships.
Did you know: In 2019, Covenant House Georgia served 1,800 young adults, ages 16-24, through their life programs with access to free education, job, and life readiness programs and health and wellness services. They have a 50-bed crisis shelter and an independent living program with 24 beds.
Its motto: “We are much more than a shelter. We provide more than a bed and a meal for homeless and trafficked youth; we show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that our youth can and will realize their fullest potential.”
How you can help: Join the Street Outreach team to give meals and hygiene products to homeless youth. Or help with a group and prepare and share a meal at Covenant House Georgia’s office in Northwest Atlanta.
