What You'll Get

For young people experiencing homelessness, a lack of medical care can pose a great risk of injury and illness. Covenant House New York has provided shelter, healthcare, crisis counseling, job training, and other support services to homeless and at-risk young people in the New York area for nearly four decades.

Within 72 hours of arrival at Covenant House, anyone under age 21 can receive a free physical or mental examination. Covenant House's team of doctors and nurses addresses a variety of medical issues including asthma, diabetes, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, and provides medical-referral services with accompaniment from a center staff member when necessary. The center also provides comprehensive support services including substance-abuse counseling, job training and help applying for college scholarships, with the goal of ending the cycle of poverty and homelessness for the young people it serves. However, as a nonprofit organization, Covenant House relies heavily on outside support to purchase the tools necessary for providing care.

Join G-Team and donate $10 to help stock Covenant House's New York center with medical supplies. If G-Team members raise $500, Covenant House New York can provide basic medical care to 25 young people experiencing homelessness. Each additional $20 raised will fund medical care for another young person.
