“For over four decades, youth overcoming homelessness in New York City have found safety and shelter from the streets at Covenant House,” said Sister Nancy Downing, executive director of Covenant House New York. “Now, for the first time in our history, we’ll be designing a new residential facility to address all of the specific needs of our youth, allowing us to provide robust services and coordinated care, expanding the scope of our work and the number of young people that we can serve.”

Made possible because of a real estate development partnership, which was structured by Denham Wolf Real Estate Services through an extensive planning and selection process, the 80,000 square foot facility represents the first local capital project in the organization’s 47-year history.
