About Covenant House + Cisco

Covenant House provides housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness and trafficking in 34 cities across the United States, Latin America, and Canada. We help young people strengthen their resilience through relentless support, unconditional love, and absolute respect. Youth find more than just a safe place to sleep at Covenant House: here, they can access job training, education programs, mental and physical health care, and legal aid to help them build a stable future.

As an international organization, Covenant House advocates for policies like ending the trafficking of minors, foster care reform, employment and education improvement, and funding transitional housing programs that impact the well-being of youth overcoming homelessness everywhere and further our mission to end youth homelessness. 

Cisco employees have been a force for good in the Sleep Out movement since 2014, raising more than $8 million to support youth overcoming homelessness in the United States, Latin America, and Canada. Team Cisco is a true grassroots effort, made up of nearly 700 employees in 20+ cities around the world. Cisco employees in Research Triangle Park (RTP) have been working to bring Sleep Out to North Carolina since before the pandemic, and it is because of their continued commitment and passion for our mission to support youth overcoming homelessness that the RTP Sleep Out is now possible.
