Covenant House

Our work is guided by a mission to serve youth with absolute respect and unconditional love… to help kids who are suffering… and to protect and safeguard all children in need. In support of our mission, Covenant House is guided by five principles.

What we believe: Our five guiding principles

  1. Immediacy – Covenant House immediately meets the basic needs of youth experiencing homelessness through a nourishing meal, a shower, clean clothes, medical attention, and a safe place to sleep.
  2. Sanctuary – Covenant House provides a safe haven from the hardships of homelessness. We recognize the fundamental worth of every human being, and create a safe setting where all youth – regardless of life experience or identity – are served without judgement.
  3. Value communication – Covenant House leads by example to demonstrate that caring relationships are based on love, trust, respect, and honesty.
  4. Structure –Covenant House provides the stability and structure necessary to build a positive future.
  5. Choice – Covenant House fosters confidence; encouraging young people to believe in themselves and make informed choices for their lives.

Covenant House is committed to helping every young person who needs us 24/7, 365 days a year. Funding from caring people like you is the lifeline that makes these programs possible across the country. Learn how we utilize resources efficiently and meaningfully for our kids.

NPH USA transforms the lives of vulnerable children in Latin America and the Caribbean by supporting the homes, health services and educational programs of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”). Together, we help children overcome poverty and become leaders in their own communities.

NPH is fully supporting more than 3,600 boys and girls in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. An additional 3,900 community children receive scholarships, meals, health care and other support. More than 81,000 services were provided through community outreach programs in 2020.

We support NPH through fundraising and volunteer programs. In addition to our national office, we have six regional offices, each working in tandem to build support for our mission.

In Crisis, Children

Dallas Youth Sports

Dallas Youth Sports, in conjunction with Dallas Youth Athletic Association, works to provide affordable recreational sports programs to the youth of the Dallas-Oak Cliff area.

Founded by a volunteer board, Dallas Youth Sports continues to operate through the generosity of members of our own community. Our staff organizes sports leagues, tournaments, and special events throughout the year in order to reach as many children as possible.

We help our inner city youth develop athletic skills, healthy living habits, and leadership qualities by building a team concept at an early age. This enhances each child personally, athletically, and academically.
