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

Our independent living department provides ongoing services to young people who have moved into their own apartments. Independent living helps people connect to stable housing opportunities. The team provides ongoing case management, landlord-tenant mediation, home visits, and connections to community referrals.

Services

Covenant House helps residents move into their own apartments by offering three main services:

  • Housing Identification: helping young people find appropriate and affordable housing on their own or with a family member or friend
  • Rent and Move-In Assistance: offering financial assistance (on a sliding scale) for 10 months to help youth and families establish their independence
  • Case Management and Services: meetings with staff on a bi-weekly basis to help our young people acquire and maintain off-site housing

Supportive Apartment Living (SAL)

Supportive Apartment Living (SAL) offers youth, who demonstrate the maturity and skills needed to live independently with a minimum amount of direct supervision, a permanent supportive housing solution. Youth residents pay rent on a monthly basis, work as a group on maintaining the facility, and live with the responsibilities of being a tenant. 

We provide programs directly, while also linking youth to community and neighborhood resources. Services provided by Covenant House include:
