Mission Statement


We who recognize God's providence and fidelity to God's people are dedicated to living out a 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 the people, 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.

Description


Faith Community is Covenant House's full-time volunteer program. It's an opportunity for recent college graduates to come together and serve at one of our Covenant House sites. In addition to serving our youth, Faith Community members live with other college graduates focused on Catholic/Christian spirituality and a simple community life style. Faith Community members dedicate their year to our program's three pillars of Service, Community, and Prayer. Service takes place in one of our shelter sites, where members work 40 hours a week helping at-risk youth get back on a healthy life path. Members are supported in this ministry by the community they live with: 3- 5 other volunteers, in a home provided by the program, where prayer and spirituality are a big part of their daily lives.
