  • Our Practice Model | Covenant House PA
    to be Kids who have been shuffled through 20 or 30 foster homes until the system finally spits them out at age 18 without a high school diploma a job or a place to live And teenagers who have been held captive by pimps who threatened to kill them unless they sold their bodies on the street over and over again night after night Our kids have faced many different challenges but they all crave one thing family And that is the heart of our work Our mission statement calls us to serve our youth with unconditional love and absolute respect Unconditional love the love of a parent for a child a brother for a sister And absolute respect respect for what our kids have been through who they are and for the potential that they all have if we expect it of them That s what we do For all too many of our kids we are the first real family they ever know Just like family we love our kids without condition and hold them to high expectations And our kids not only survive they thrive One of the founders of Covenant House Pennsylvania is Dr Kenneth Ginsburg
