Shine Bright Campaign

The Shine Bright Campaign! 

This back-to-school season, lighten the burdens of homeless youth so they can turn their dreams into reality.  

Shine Bright Campaign
 For many youth experiencing homelessness, continuing their education doesn't   seem like an option. They are worried about when they will get their next meal,   where they will sleep at night, and how they will stay safe on the streets.
 
 This is what makes the work that Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) youth   achieve so remarkable! They overcome every hurdle to find refuge in our crisis   shelter, work diligently with our case managers to create stability in their lives,   and allow themselves to dream about their future goals -- including education!
 
 This year we had 16 youth enroll in college! We believe, that with your help, we   can continue to increase the number of youth who SHINE BRIGHT in their   educational endeavors.

 

Partner with Covenant House this Back to School season to raise $25,000 by September 1st, 2018!

Shine Bright CampaignMy name is Aaron, and I was a resident in Covenant House Georgia's crisis shelter this year. I am an Atlanta local -- growing up in West End Atlanta. I come from a family that has various substance abuse issues, which led to me experiencing homelessness multiple times growing up. I have always enjoyed learning and going to school, and I realized that being able to prioritize academics while being homeless is very difficult. This year, when my family and I became homeless yet again, I made the extremely difficult decision to leave my family, including my twin, to find stability in my life.

I was fortunate to find Covenant House where they not only provided me with shelter and fresh meals, but also gave me an opportunity to further my education in the Pathways Leading to Undergraduate Studies (PLUS)program. Through the staff's connections and expertise I enrolled and was accepted to Livingstone University. I have successfully moved onto campus and will spend summer and possibly holiday breaks with my Covenant House family. I feel so much pride to be a first generation college student... and eventually graduate!
