Mission Spotlight

JUNE SPOTLIGHT:
Presbyterian Children’s Home

Covenant has been in partnership with Presbyterian Children’s Home and Services (PCHAS) since 1999. Unlike other social service agencies, PCHAS combines data-driven program design and expertly trained staff with a philosophy of care that keeps everyone—from social workers to executive leaders—focused on the goals and strengths of each child and their family. We have loved being able to support their ministry in all kinds of ways and are excited to spotlight some of their current work.

How you can help

Even though the 2020/2021 school year is ending, PCHAS is already preparing for the 2021/2022 school year. We will be collecting all kinds of School Supplies for PCHAS this month.
Collection dates will be Sunday June 13th, June 20th and June 27th from 8:15 - 11:15 a.m. Collection Bins will be on the porch outside of Covenant Hall.

The liaison is someone who is passionate about the Mission Partner, well versed in the work of the partner, actively connected to the partner and champion for their work.
