Important Bill being introduced!
6 years ago

Please reach out to your Congressional representatives! A new bill was recently introduced that would direct President Obama to call a White House Conference on Children and Youth in 2010. With over 3 million reports of abuse and neglect, which cost tax-payers $104 billion there is strong incentive to improve child welfare system. Together, we must urge our representatives to vote for this key legislation! Take Action Now Why We Care Imagine answering 500,000 phone calls for help every year! Covenant House does just that through its Nineline hotline. Thousands of troubled youth – and the adults who care about them – call us or visit our Nineline web site, looking for help and support to understand the issues they face – serious problems like abuse, running away, basic needs and suicide. Even more kids and families could benefit from our 24/7 Nineline service. Learn more about Nineline. Donate Now Help Covenant House carry out vital advocacy efforts. Your generous support helps create a voice for America’s forgotten youth. Give today Send To A Friend
