Yes, I want to help make sure that kids have a good meal and a safe place to sleep tonight! Your gift will begin working immediately.

Monthly Giving

As a Good Samaritan monthly donor, you are making a commitment to kids that have been let down by so many of the adults in their lives. Often abused and abandoned by those who should love them most, they find themselves on the street, utterly alone.

When you show our youth that you are on the journey with them, it has a life-changing effect on a young person. They only need one person to believe in them to take their first steps towards a bright future.

When you become a Good Samaritan monthly donor, you help to reduce our admin costs and provide a steady source of income so we may continue to care for youth and guide them toward a better future.

Corporate Partnerships

We recognize that successful partnerships don’t generally fit a one size fits all model. We’d love to learn about the needs of your organization, and create a partnership that is meaningful, rewarding and sustainable for all involved. We can work with you to engage your employees in multiple ways including (but not limited to): volunteerism, service projects, supply drives, in-kind donations, cause-related marketing, employee giving, job creation, special event participation, sponsorship and programmatic investments.

Covenant House Texas offers corporate partners an opportunity to align with the largest organization in the Americas providing homeless young people a path away from chronic homelessness and towards productive adult lives. Our corporate partnership team will work with your organization to develop a partnership program that meets your corporate social responsibility objectives and business goals. Our most successful partnerships are collaborative and integrated across a company’s human resources, philanthropy, public relations and communications strategies.

Please contact Luis Rivas at lrivas@covenanthouse.org to start a dialogue on how your company can partner with CHT, while dramatically improving the lives of homeless and trafficked young people.
