Covenant House NYC

As I said before, November is Youth Homeless Awareness month. 
Today I was able to go down to Covenant House, a homeless shelter that in New York City that is specifically for homeless youth. To say the least I was blown away at the amount of work and dedication both the staff and the youth in Covenant House have.

Another reason I want to raise awareness of youth homelessness is because homelessness is a MAJOR problem in the Teen Mom community. Covenant House actually has a GREAT mother and children program and while I was there I got to speak to a teen mom that is housed and in Covenant House's program. Her story and more in depth information about Covenant House is soon to follow. 

Thank you for reading!
