Covenant House Alaska Raises Awareness of Homeless Youth

On Nov. 16, people gathered in Anchorage’s Town Square Park to take part in the annual Covenant House Candlelight Vigil, which raises awareness of youth who have no place to call home.

Partnership Impacts Homeless Youth Services

Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC) and Covenant House Alaska (CHA) have joined forces to increase housing in Anchorage for transitional age youth who are at-risk or homeless. The partnership will expand CHA’s Rights of Passage transitional living program through CITC’s Dena’ina House, a newly renovated residential facility at 750 W. Fifth Avenue in Anchorage.
