Donate

One of the primary goals of the Board of Directors is to provide services and programs not funded by HUD. These services and programs further enhance the lives of our residents during their stay at Covenant House. The only funding source for these is through individual donations. We have established a 501(c)(3) – Tucson Covenant with Elderly, to accept these donations.

All, 100%, of each dollar contributed goes directly to benefit our residents through these programs and services. Some of our most valued programs include: our Wellness Center, a computer lab, movie night, holiday celebrations, and the Covenant closet.

We feel mental & physical fitness, spirituality and just having fun all contribute to the continued well being of our residents.

The Wellness Center is regularly attended by more than one-half of the residents. There are chair exercises, workout equipment, stretching classes, and a walking club.

The computer lab is invaluable in enabling our residents to keep in touch with family & friends, and to keep tabs on their communities from where they came- around the globe. They play games, read, and research on the web.

The Covenant Closet is a very important value to those residents who occasionally run short of cash at month’s end. We stock it with personal hygiene needs, emergency food, and personal items that many times we take for granted in our daily lives-but are essential in theirs.

If you would like to help us maintain these services and programs outlined here, and those that we establish in the future, please consider a tax-deductible donation today. You can earmark your donation to a specific service or program, in memory of a loved one, or in honor of someone special.

Thank you for your interest in the B’nai B’rith Covenant House. You will enjoy the satisfaction that your donation has made a person’s life better!
