About Covenant House
Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in the Americas that provides food, shelter, immediate crisis care, and an array of other important services to homeless, abandoned, abused, trafficked, and exploited youth. There are 30 Covenant House locations across the United States, Canada and Latin Americas – and together we serve more than 51,000 homeless young people each year, giving them the love and support they need to find their way off of the streets.
In New Jersey, we provide 159 beds each night, and services to more than 2,000 youth between the ages of 18 and 21 in 7 cities each year. Our Outreach staff, by foot and in vans, search areas of the state known to be havens for homeless, runaway and trafficked young people. These young people when they come to our Crisis Centers in Newark or Atlantic City they are offered medical, legal, educational, vocational, counseling and many other services such as basic care. We reassure youth that if they are courageous enough to take that first step of walking through our doors, we will not turn them away.

Covenant House Street Outreach in Monmouth County
In March of 2012, Covenant House New Jersey began offering Outreach Services to homeless and at-risk youth in Monmouth County. We reach out to young people who are suffering on the street. We start with a van, some sandwiches, water, blankets, and unconditional love. Our outreach workers go out into the community making relationships with young people in crisis and offer them guidance, support and shelter if needed. Our Outreach Center is located right in the heart of Asbury Park.
After 5 years of operating as a drop-in center out of Asbury Park we are excited to announce that this past April we began construction on a NEW building to house our local youth. The Rights of Passage home will allow the city's homeless youth the opportunity to stay close to home instead of being sent to shelters in Atlantic City or Newark. It will be located along Prospect Avenue and it will offer men ages 18-22 a temporary home as they transition out of homelessness. This project is being done in collaboration with our friends at Interfaith Neighbors in Asbury Park.
