Covenant House Missouri continues to be a place of hope and direction for young people who are homeless and disconnected. The vast majority of the youth who come to CHMO have experienced abuse, neglect and poverty. Many of them are forced to flee their homes to escape unhealthy and unstable environments. Still, the young people we serve show a tremendous resilience and resourcefulness in obtaining what they need to survive.
These young people have the desire to change, but often lack the skills, tools and resources needed to make that change happen. The services CHMO provides are critical to the transformation of these young people’s lives. Our programs help youth develop character and life skills which allow them to become self-sufficient, productive and contributing members of society.
