Life inside Oakland's Covenant House

Covenant House is one of the largest networks of shelters for young people between the ages of 18 and 24 who are homeless, aged out of foster care system, or have escaped human trafficking.

With 21 locations in the United States and Canada, Covenant House is more than just a homeless shelter. It provides medical and legal aid, life skills training, GED or vocational training, and much more.

Housed in a former warehouse that once served as Jerry Brown’s commune in Oakland's Jack London Square, the 17,000-square-foot facility has a basketball court, library and computer lab.

Most importantly, it provides a safe haven for young people who seek a better future.
