Covenant House was founded in 1972 in New York City, with a commitment to not only protect and serve young people who face homelessness, but to serve them in a community where they are treated with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment continues in Covenant House’s work in New York and across the federation for young people in 31 cities in 6 countries. Covenant House New York (CHNY) is NYC’s largest provider of shelter and essential services to unaccompanied youth (age 16-24) who have experienced homelessness, trafficking and exploitation. Since its inception, CHNY’s mission has been to provide immediate housing for all youth and young adults in need. CHNY uses a trauma-informed approach that emphasizes physical, psychological, and emotional safety, and creates opportunities for youth to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment in their lives.

Living Goods (LG) empowers community health workers (CHW) to deliver life-saving products and services to homes of the underprivileged and underserved in Uganda.
The program recruits, trains and supports a network of CHWs who go door-to-door to teach families how to improve their health while also supplying low-cost, life-changing products from its well-stocked branch warehouses. LG provides ongoing training, supervision and recertification. Its results-based financing model (RFB) dramatically reduces deaths in the most vulnerable populations for an annual cost of less than $2 per person while also generating revenue that compensates the millions of CHWs required to provide the much-needed care. LG seeks large scale impact and is able to deliver this systematically through the use of mobile tools and real-time performance management as well as by leveraging its partnerships.
