sleep out, young professionals

On March 20, 229 young professionals took the streets here in New York City to show homeless young people they aren't alone. They met our residents, and learned about the joys and fears of teenagers and young adults who are finding their way in the world. They shared laughter and a few tears. And together, they raised more than $465,000 to continue the life-changing work of Covenant House. Click here for more....
