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.
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.

The Morning Sandwich and Snack Ministry: provides a basic breakfast of sandwiches, snacks, water and a cup of coffee to those in need. Our guests are served from the Parish Hall, at the MLK entrance, each weekday from 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM.
Each year from November 1 to March 31, The Shrine ministers to a small portion of the homeless along with numerous organizations and churches by being a part of the Bashor Night Shelter. The Shrine hosts 30-35 of the 100+ guests and by providing sack lunches, dinner, and overnight assistance for approximately 30 of the 150 nights.
Our signup each season begins in September with several Sign-up Sundays held after the Masses. If you want to check out our schedule, click the Shrine Night Shelter Schedule on the website.
Foot Care Night:
Shelter Footcare is an opportunity to be with guests at our Shelter and respond to the Gospel’s call to be in the company of and serve the poor. This very rewarding experience is available on Wednesday nights, November 1 through March 31. Some required training is provided so that volunteers can take care of guest’s weary feet.
St. Francis Table:
The guests are invited in at 10:00 AM. They enter through the door located on the Martin Luther King Boulevard side of the Shrine. They each receive a meat and cheese sandwich, bowl, cup, spoon and napkin. Once the guests are seated, the volunteers serve the soup from large pitchers. Each person is fed until they have their fill and then they leave through the door on the parking lot side of the church. As each guest leaves, they are given desserts. After each group of guests leaves, the next group is let in. The kitchen stays open and serves soup and sandwiches until 12:00 noon when clean up begins.
