At Covenant House Georgia (CHGA), we are much more than a shelter. We provide more than a bed and a meal for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking; we show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that our youth can and will realize their fullest potential.

Covenant House opens doors of opportunity and hope to youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking. We welcome all youth and invite them to learn how to open their own doors, hearts and futures. Our door is open to anyone regardless of race, creed, gender or the circumstances that have brought them to our threshold.
Covenant House is more than just a place to stay. It is a belief that we and our partners can do more than feed and clothe. We can counsel, mentor, heal, advocate, inspire, and transform. Together we can create a future where no youth is forced to spend the night on the street.
The opening of the first Covenant House door coincided with the opening of its first heart. One night in New York City, during a snowstorm in 1969, a simple Franciscan priest was moved to welcome several homeless youth in from the cold. When Father Bruce Ritter made that choice to practice what he preached, he gave hope to homeless youth everywhere. Covenant House was formally incorporated in 1972.
Covenant House Georgia opened in 2000 and has since served more than 18,000 homeless, runaway and trafficked youth in Atlanta.
