GET HELP - Are you a young person in need of help?

Because Covenant House New Jersey serves homeless youth throughout the state of New Jersey and the number of properties we operate continues to increase to meet the needs of our young people, we have created several Program Boards to help us raise support to develop and sustain particular initiatives.

While our Program Boards have no legal governance responsibilities, they are integral in ensuring that the services that we provide to our young people continue. They do this by helping us to raise funds for their particular area of interest. We could not do what we do without them.

Our Program Boards function is organized around the services within a particular community, a particular service we provide, or the demographics of the group itself. If you are interested in learning more about our Program Boards please contact Sue Monteiro,
