About Covenant House Toronto:
Founded in 1982, Covenant House Toronto (CHT) is Canada’s largest agency for at risk, homeless and trafficked youth. Its mission is to “…serve suffering children of the street, and protect and safeguard all young people...with absolute respect and unconditional love.” Its vision is “to lead change that challenges at risk, homeless and trafficked youth to pursue a life of opportunity.”
Covenant House Toronto provides youth, aged 16 to 24, with a 24/7 crisis shelter, and longer-term housing on-site and in the community. CHT also provides a wide range of services including health care, education, job training, transitional housing and employment assistance. As many as 250 youth benefit from the agency's service and support daily.
Covenant House Toronto is part of a leading international agency and has served over 90,000 youths since its inception. It has recently completed a 5-year strategic plan that included annual goals focused on housing and aftercare, employment opportunities, community support, advocacy, fiscal stewardship and expansion. Its new 2018-2022 plan builds on these key priorities.
In F2017, Covenant House Toronto provided residential programs to 947 youth, drop-in services to 1,640 and supported 81 victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking. Further, 702 youths were treated over 5,739 visits to its health care clinic. Over the year, CHT also provided 23 local and national sex trafficking presentations and training sessions. In F2017, 185 youth were reunited with their families, and 382 young people realized jobs or job-training placements. More than 34,000 GTA students participated in its school presentations, including 5,000 in sex trafficking prevention.
Covenant House Toronto is one of Canada’s top 100 charities by donations, with donations of $19.5m in F2016. Its administrative costs were 6% of revenues and fundraising costs were 33% of donations. As such, for every $1 donated, 61 cents go towards the cause. This falls just outside of Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range of overhead spending. Covenant House Toronto has funding reserves of $13.6m, resulting in a program cost coverage ratio of 92%. This means that the charity can cover 11 months of its annual programs.
