History

|

Considering Michigan’s alarming statistics when it comes to young adults living in poverty, Covenant House Michigan aims to provide services that address, not only the issue of homelessness, but, also, issues that coincide with homelessness.

Following an exhaustive needs assessment study that clearly indicated the unmet needs of Detroit and Michigan youth, Covenant House Michigan (CHM) was established in 1997.

Based on the needs analysis, as well as meetings with community leaders, it was determined that our work in Detroit should begin with services designed to prevent crises that often lead to homelessness among at-risk vulnerable youth along with offering protection against youth violence. With this goal in mind, Covenant House Michigan established two Community Service Centers and a Job Development Center.
