Words from one our partners…
It is a pleasure to write this support letter to Covenant House Academy, a school community that specializes in welcoming and serving disconnected youth with a strategy that is both customized and trauma informed. Our work at Park West Foundation is to promote innovate, creative and lasting solutions to remove barriers facing youth aging out of foster care and promote their well-being.
Because of the sensitivity of our population we partner only with those organizations that have practical, relevant and proven outcomes in supporting our young adults’ academic, social and overall well-being.
Covenant House Academy is one of those key partners that treat our young adults with dignity while continuously striving to improve service and be a part of the solution. The school community is open to partners and community partners in a meaningful way with dedicated commitment that is demonstrated in various ways.
