Covenant House New Jersey

Changing The Future For Youth Facing Homelessness

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.


Continuum of Care

Residential Crisis

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.
