<ul><li>1.City Church of New Orleans Presents : Will You Be Ready? October 18, 2013 Covenant House New Orleans</li></ul> <p>2. What is Covenant House? Covenant House is a shelter for homeless and atrisk youth between the ages of 16-22 The Crisis Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Help begins with a hot meal, clean clothes, a shower, a bed and medical care. Only after these immediate needs are met does the Covenant House staff begin to address the more complex problems of these youth in crisis. CHNO offers more than just a roof over their head; they also provide medical and behavioral health services, educational support, job support, life skills classes, daycare, case management, etc 3. How Did We Help? City Church presented our movie Will You Be Ready? to the youth here at Covenant House in New Orleans. The movie discusses personal life choices for youth, and how to deal the the pressures of society. Not only did we send the message that these kids have the opportunity to change their paths, but we also created meaningful relationships and made an otherwise regular evening special We brought snacks, refreshments and door prizes to make the night much more than just a movie night! 4. Ongoing Plans at Covenant House City Church has already established a great relationship with Covenant House We plan on continuing to do events with the kids there; besides this movie night, we have presented another movie, taken a group for beignets at Caf Du Monde, hosted a Vision Board making event, among other activities Many of our members have made real connections with them, so we look forward to all we can do to help CHNO in the future. To make the holidays special, we are planning a gift drive, a concert, and other activities for our new friends at Covenant House. 5. How will Covenant House Benefit from the Super Service Challenge? By winning the Super Service Challenge, Covenant House will continue to serve homeless and at-risk youth from New Orleans and all over the country. Not only will they continue to practice open intake (CHNO vows never to turn anyone away), but they wont have to worry about how to keep their doors open for everyone who walks through them. A grant from the Super Service Challenge will ensure Covenant House will never turn a lost soul away. 6. Will You Be Ready?
