Black Friday Luncheon
Covenant House is a shelter for homeless and at-risk
youth between the ages of 16-22, and their children.
The Crisis Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a
week, 365 days a year. Help begins with a hot
meal, clean clothes, a shower, a bed and medical care.
Only after these immediate needs are met does the
Covenant House staff begin to address the more
complex problems of these youth in crisis.
CHNO offers more than just a roof over their head;
they also provide medical and behavioral health
services, educational support, job support, life skills
classes, daycare, case management, etc…
Myself, my mother, and my sister brought and served lunch
to the youth here at Covenant House on the day after
We brought them fried chicken, potato salad, green
beans, bread rolls, and a special dessert. We wanted them
to feel special through out the Holiday week!
The kids at Covenant House are given three meals a day
every day, no matter what, without charge.
By helping Covenant House provide a basic meal for 100
kids, the organization only had to provide two meals that
day, therefore saving them money they can use to help keep
their doors open to everyone who walks through them.
Food is a basic necessity of life; it was our pleasure to help
feed those in need!
As a member of City Church New Orleans, I have
participated in multiple events at Covenant House
prior to my Black Friday Luncheon
I will continue to participate in all of the City Church
events, as well as plan my own individual activities and
give back as much as I can
I have developed real, meaningful relationships with
the kid here at Covenant House, and have already
planned to participate in a Movie Night this December
By winning the Super Service Challenge, Covenant House
will continue to serve homeless and at-risk youth from New
Orleans and all over the country.
Not only will CHNO continue to practice open intake
(CHNO vows never to turn anyone away), but they will not
have to worry about how to keep their doors open for
everyone who walks through them.
A grant from the Super Service Challenge will ensure
Covenant House will never turn a lost soul away, and will
be able to provide the basics of life to those in need.
