The Covenant House

The Covenant House is similar to what I want to build or run. If you are in need of help right now please call them (1-800-999-9999). They don't need to know your name or where you live, they will just talk to you or help you find someone to see near your home. I highly recommend them. They are open everyday 24 hours a day.

Need to talk?

Call the Covenant House Nineline: 1-800-999-9999; TTY: 1-800-999-9915

Listen to what's going on at home, help sort out the problem and think about who can help.
Help figure out how to talk with parents
