Faith Community is Covenant House's full-time volunteer program. It's an opportunity for recent college graduates to come together and serve at one of our Covenant House sites.
In addition to serving our youth, Faith Community members live with other college graduates focused on Catholic/Christian spirituality and a simple community life style. Faith Community members dedicate their year to our program's three pillars of Service, Community, and Prayer. Service takes place in one of our shelter sites, where members work 40 hours a week helping our youth get back on a healthy life path. Members are supported in this ministry by the community they live with: 3- 5 other volunteers, in a home provided by the program, where prayer and spirituality are a big part of their daily lives.
Our program was established in 1977 and has had over 1,000 volunteers serve with us.
