Our Mission Partners
Covenant partners with four organizations that address homelessness and hunger. We support each of these with dollars and volunteers. Please take a moment to read about them and join us!
Building is expected to begin in the Fall of 2017 for ten units of Habitat housing on Globe Avenue in Culver City. Covenant donated $10,000 to this project and the Presbytery of the Pacific has now raised over $180,000 for this build so far. When the work begins, contact Covenant to volunteer!

Mayor Garcetti’s office has called on faith communities to participate in the city and county’s coordinated effort to end homelessness. Covenant provides meeting space to the various service provider agencies and continues to explore ways to serve. We have a mentor team with Imagine LA (see below). Read more about the mayor’s “call to compassion” and LA County’s strategies below.
Once a homeless person receives housing, the goal is to see that they are successful in managing their household, so they don’t return to the streets. Imagine LA forms mentor teams, to walk alongside a family for 18 mos. to 2 years. Each family member has a one-on-one mentor and a budget mentor. Covenant has a mentor team with Imagine LA.
