History

Covenant House Florida continues to fulfill its mission by providing shelter and services to children and youth who are homeless or at great risk. We will make every effort to reunite kids with their families. We will collaborate with community agencies and organizations and actively participate in community efforts to improve the conditions of families and children. We will advocate with and on behalf of youth to raise awareness in the community about their suffering. Our mission is based on faith and the belief that all children and youth have a right to love, respect, and genuine concern. Our individual and shared spiritualties will permeate all of our activities.

Mission

“We who recognize God’s providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in His humanity is the visible sign of God’s presence among His people, so our efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and our kids.”
