One Day to Make a Difference
May 11, 2017
#GIVESTLDAY

Give STL Day is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the St. Louis Community Foundation. The goal of this single-day event is to grow philanthropy in the St. Louis metropolitan area by inspiring the community to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible in just 24 hours.

Since 1998, the mission of Covenant House Missouri is to serve suffering youth of the street, and to protect and safeguard all youth…with absolute respect and unconditional love. 


In fiscal year 2016, Covenant House Missouri services supported 5,286 youth in the greater St. Louis area. 86% of youth received tutoring services and improved their grades. 79% of youth who entered our Crisis program were discharged to safe and stable housing. 91% of youth in our Transitional Living Program saved an average of $1,080 upon discharge.


No matter the amount, your investment goes a long way…
 
$25 provides several meals to youth in crisis care
$100 gives a young person who is homeless a warm bed for a night
 $250 allows a youth the opportunity to engage in structured
developmental activities
 $1,000 supports 10 youth to enhance their employment skills by participating in our 7-day employment skills class

#GiveSTLDay will feature fun events throughout the day, including donor prizes and opportunities for organizations to earn matching funds, enabling your gift to have even more impact. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for real-time updates and to help us spread the word about the event!

THE CRUCIAL PIECES
TO INDEPENDENCE 

Covenant House Missouri openly accepts youth 16-21 years old. Our programs combine four crucial pieces to independence: mental health, residential, education and career development, and community outreach services. Through an individualized, holistic approach, we empower youth to design their paths to independence. Our vision is to lead change that truly empowers youth who are homeless and disconnected to pursue a life of opportunity.
