Family, Community and Covenant House

When Mike first went on a tour of Covenant House, he was mystified. “I just couldn’t believe that people would kick their kids out. Your family is supposed to be the place where you are surrounded by love. These kids didn’t have that.” Crediting his parents for his deep sense of service, Mike felt compelled to do something, even something small, to make life for a homeless young person a little easier. “Any small thing counts.”
