Get ready for another virtual concert with big stars
Covenant House president and CEO Kevin Ryan said, “This virus does not get the last word. These stars have stepped up because they recognize that our young people don’t have the option to shelter at home without a home.”
He continued, “For thousands of young people, Covenant House is their home. We need more food, more supplies, and we need to continue to provide staffing to care for sick and symptomatic youth.”
