Young Professionals for Covenant House is a group of dynamic, goal-oriented individuals who share a common commitment to the South Florida community. Founded in early 1992, the main purpose of our organization is to provide continuing support and awareness of Covenant House Florida. The members of Young Professionals gather for after work socials and special events.
Covenant House Florida provides both residential and walk-in services for runaway,homeless, and at-risk youth under 21, including teen parents and their babies. Since opening in September 1985, we have helped over 30,000 youths. Every day we reach more than 190 kids a day via crisis shelters, transitional housing project, and community services. Covenant House Florida is one of the largest private agencies that provides direct care to runaway and homeless youth in the State of Florida. Covenant House Florida is privately funded (about 80%) and we rely on private donations from individuals and businesses to keep our doors open to kids who have nowhere else to turn.
Membership in Young Professionals for Covenant House runs for one year from the date joined and is open to all young business professionals who wish to support this wonderful program through fundraising and volunteer work. In addition, you will receive discounted admission to each or our regular monthly socials, special rates and sneak peaks on all other events, and access to members only events!
