Ending Youth Homelessness
The Cove is an after-school nurturing center serving Waco Independent School District high school youth experiencing homelessness. Last year, 335 local high schoolers were in living situations so unsafe and unstable that they had no place to call home. The Cove is a safe space to access showers, a washer and dryer, family-style dinner, supportive case management and educational programming. Perhaps more than that, The Cove is a place for students to belong. For the first time this year, The Cove will be open through the summer months, providing free lunches and relational support. Statistically, only one in four Texas youth who experience homelessness will go on to graduate high school. Last year, 100% of Cove seniors graduated from local high schools.
