Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ) was founded and incorporated in 1989. CHNJ is the largest provider in the state of services to homeless and at-risk adolescents between the ages of 16 and 21. CHNJ provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling, medical attention, crisis intervention and other services to runaways and homeless youth. Last year, we served over 2,000 young people. Tonight alone, we will give 110 homeless adolescents and 19 babies in North and South Jersey a safe and caring place to sleep. We offer shelter that is enriched with a comprehensive array of supportive services that help our young people to not only stabilize their crises, but to also transition to a stable living environment where they can continue to progress in their life’s goals.
