WHY ARE OUR YOUNG PEOPLE HOMELESS?

Covenant House Michigan offers unconditional love, respect and hope to youth ages 18-24. The kids and young adults we serve feel unloved and unwanted. They have been abused, neglected and abandoned. We find them on the streets, living in abandoned houses, cars, sleeping on friends’ couches, among other places. They come from all over Michigan searching for a way out of their desperate situations. Their stories are heart-breaking yet admirable. They are survivors. Six of the most common reasons for youth homelessness are…
