Covenant House New Jersey provides comprehensive residential care and related services to help New Jersey’s youth who have suffered from abuse, neglect, abandonment, homelessness, and human trafficking build a life for themselves that is good.
We journey with our young people from the streets, to our Residential Crisis Centers, to our transitional living homes, and on to independent living in the community to help them break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
Our Outreach Team travels into NJ communities to directly develop relationships with youth on the streets, building trust, offering them assistance with basic necessities and inviting them to our shelters. The team also works with community partners via Neighborhood Outreach (KNOT) to identify youth facing homelessness.
We provide Drop-In services to youth walking in from the streets at our two Crisis Centers located in Atlantic City and Newark.
When a young person comes into one of our Residential Crisis Centers for help, we meet them where they are. We start with a smile, a kind word, a meal, a shower, clean clothes, and a bed where our kids can safely get some much-needed rest.
Young people work to develop all of the skills and knowledge to live independently and make the transition to mature adulthood.
Through our Independent living services, we continue to support young people even after they’ve moved out of Covenant House New Jersey properties.
