Will you join the Young Professionals of Atlanta in sleeping out to stand in solidarity with youth experiencing homelessness?
4.2 million youth in America will face homelessness this year. According to a homeless youth count done by Georgia State University, there are 3,300 homeless youth in metro Atlanta alone. Thanks to our incredible supporters, Covenant House Georgia served over 1,800 youth experiencing homelessness just last year.
We are much more than a shelter. We provide unconditional love and comprehensive support so that our youth can and will realize their fullest potential. In fact, seeing their potential is our greatest motivation. We are optimistic about the power of a stable, loving environment to inspire a fresh start in their lives. It is a privilege to support at-risk youth during some of their most formative years. We empower them to finish high school, start college, gain employment, live independently, and ultimately step out into the world knowing they are prepared to be successful. Covenant House provides these young people with safe shelter and wrap-around services, including education and job training, so they can move forward to an adulthood free of poverty and the threat of homelessness.
During the event, enjoy dinner, tour our campus and programs, expereince street outreach, see the talents of our youth through their performances in Cov Cafe, and hear the experiences of CHGA youth. Then sleep outside to send a clear message to youth expereincing homelessness in Atlanta that they are not alone.
Join us on Friday, June 26, 2020 to raise awareness and funds to support our youth in rebuilding their futures!
