CRW firmly believes in giving back to our community, and this week we’re spotlighting Covenant House Alaska (CHA), an organization that helps Anchorage youth in crisis by helping homeless teens find stability. Through the CHA Youth Engagement Center, youth have access to an array of programs and services including a Street Outreach/Drop-In Center, Shelter services, a Youth Enrichment program, Employment and Education Services, Housing, and a pastoral ministry. Serving over 5,700 youth every year, Covenant house helps Alaskan youth get their lives back on track.
How can you help? CHA is always looking for monetary donations, but they also are in need of volunteers and physical resources. If you are an expert in your field, you can volunteer to give a job groups/life skills presentation. There are opportunities to mentor transitional living residents, ages 18-21, who work to develop stable lives off the streets. Click on the corresponding links for more information if you are interested in volunteer opportunities, providing in-kind donations, and/or making a monetary donation.
This spotlight is the second in a series, and part of CRW's Holiday Season of Giving Back. Our goal is to increase awareness of local non-profits who help the less fortunate, with the hopes that it will gain them more resources to improve our community.
