Thankfully our youth survived Tropical Storm Harvey, but our shelter did not.

Covenant House is open and accepting homeless youth displaced by the storm. Our property suffered damage, but all the residents and employees are safe and dry. We are accessing the damage in our shelter and planning our repairs so we can avoid damage in the future and provide a safe space for homeless youth. If you would like to volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Luis Rivas at or at 713-630-5628.
