Covenant House
Description

At Covenant House Georgia (CHGA), we are much more than a shelter. We provide more than a bed and a meal for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking; we show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that our youth can and will realize their fullest potential.

CRISIS SHELTER

Emergency shelter ranging from 30-90 days is provided to young people ages 18-24. Medical and mental health care is provided with the focus on primary care, ob/gyn care, prenatal care, STD, HIV, asthma and diabetes screening, health education, and drug awareness and education. Youth who are suffering with severe and persistent mental illness receive or are referred to psychiatric counseling, medication management and help finding supported permanent housing. Youth in the Crisis Shelter participate in educational and vocational programs, learn basic life skills, and seek employment with the goal of creating an independent, sustainable future for themselves.

RIGHTS OF PASSAGE

As is the case for many of our youth, a stay in the crisis shelter is not long enough to become self-sufficient. The Rights of Passage program is our independent living program designed to give them more time to reach the goal of self-sufficiency. It is a 24-bed onsite and 4-bed offsite program that youth are eligible for after they have stabilized in the Crisis Shelter and obtained employment. Case managers assist youth as they transition into independent living.
