OUR SUCCESS STORIES

Covenant House Michigan empowers young people to overcome homelessness and trafficking, and find hope and progress by strengthening their resilience through relentless support, unconditional love, and absolute respect. While their stories may be different, we are absolutely committed to providing them a path toward independence and success.

OUR SUCCESS STORIES

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.
Read their stories, take notice, remember and share them with others.
