About Us

Covenant House Florida serves runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth under 21 including teen parents and their babies.  Each year, we reach hundreds of kids in Fort Lauderdale and Orlando via street outreach, crisis shelters, transitional housing projects, and aftercare, making Covenant House Florida one of the largest private agencies serving runaway and homeless youth in the state of Florida. Since 1985, Covenant House Florida has served over 36,000 youth in the state of Florida.

We are honored to have the Young Professionals for Covenant House host the 5K on A1A for the past nine years.  Young Professionals for Covenant House is a group of young business professionals between the ages for 25 and 40 who strongly believe in our mission, raising money and awareness for Covenant House Florida.  Since 1992, the Young Professionals for Covenant House have raised over $1,715,000 to help the homeless youth who find refuge at Covenant House Florida.
