Covenant House is the nation’s largest private shelter serving youth. In 2011 alone, it provided food, clothing, shelter, and support services to more than 3,000 youth. Its Crisis Center, located in midtown Manhattan, is the only place in the city where a homeless teenager or young adult under 21 years of age can walk in and find immediate care. Residents generally stay up to 30 days and referrals are then made to long-term transitional living programs, such as Covenant House's Rights of Passage program. The Mother Child program provides services to homeless pregnant women and mothers with children. The program focuses on obtaining long-term housing, health services, counseling, employment, training, and parenting skills. The program provides a full day nursery for infants and toddlers while their parents attend school, vocational training, or are at work.
