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

Welcome to CHART - Covenant House Action and Research Tank

CHARTing a course to safety and stability for youth experiencing homelessness and survivors of human trafficking through services, research, training, and advocacy.

Where youth services and innovation meet

As experts in the field of service to youth experiencing homelessness and trafficking, CHNJ saw a disconnect between research and services. CHART was established to contribute with:

  • Action research
  • Evidence for impactful services
  • Shared findings

Relevant Models for Care

Powered by in-depth research and up-to-date data, CHART enables us to better serve survivors of human trafficking and homelessness through:

  • Revised & relevant models of care
  • Meaningful contributions to regional and national dialogues
