DRI Cares


The DRI Diversity and Inclusion Committee is raising money in support of Covenant House New Orleans. For over 25 years, Covenant House New Orleans has provided a safe haven for homeless, runaway and at-risk youth ages 16-22. Located on the edge of the French Quarter, Covenant House offers shelter and care for neglected, abused, and exploited kids from all walks of life.

When youth walk through the doors of Covenant House, they are provided with a hot meal, clothes, a bed, caring staff, and much more. Individual medical care is provided on-site within 72 hours. Covenant House also develops a personalized case plan with each youth and works with them every step of the way to reunite them with family, when possible, or develop the tools they need to live independently.

By donating to Covenant House through our team, you are helping to rebuild and reunite families and offer young people the tools they need to build healthy, independent and productive lives. Please make a donation today and help us reach and surpass our fundraising goal!

To learn more about Covenant House, we encourage you to watch SHELTER from the Peabody Award-winning Renaud Brothers. This film takes a raw and in-depth look at the lives of residents at Covenant House New Orleans. Please click here to donate.
