Covenant House & Andaz 5th Avenue

Andaz 5th Avenue will award a grant to Covenant House, the largest privately funded charity in the Americas providing loving care and vital services to homeless, abandoned, abused, trafficked and exploited youth. Covenant House is dedicated to serving all children with absolute respect and unconditional love, to help suffering homeless, kids and to protect and safeguard all children in need.

Covenant House has become engrained in the hotel’s culture and is at the forefront of all their hotel activities. Hosting events for the kids, raising money for the nonprofit, hosting clothing drives, monthly visits, lunches and providing all Covenant House children with towels, shampoo and other essential items are just a few of the many things that Andaz 5th Avenue team does to support this nonprofit organization.

With this grant Andaz 5th Avenue hope to elevate the partnership with Covenant House even more.  One major idea being discussed includes a culinary arts program that will prep the kids with skills they can use to begin a culinary career in New York City, offering them the opportunity to build a career and a steady income. Another idea is a travel agency skill program for kids to learn about the hospitality industry and necessary skills to work in the travel/hospitality industry.
