Covenant House

GOAL | SPRING 2025

Covenant House in Charleston, West Virginia, is an independent, not-for-profit organization committed to providing sanctuary and support for those experiencing homelessness and hardship. The institution is dedicated to delivering comprehensive, compassionate services that address immediate needs such as shelter, food, and clothing and promote long-term solutions through advocacy, education, and community outreach.

For over three decades, Covenant House has been a pillar in the Charleston community and beyond, offering a pathway to stability for individuals and families in crisis. Covenant House plays a crucial role in transforming lives and strengthening the community it serves by fostering an environment of dignity, respect, and opportunity.

Project Overview:

As a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families facing homelessness and hardship, Covenant House is committed to innovative solutions that benefit both the environment and our community.

Having solar at Covenant House will help to offset 35% of their annual electricity expenses, thereby allowing them to allocate more resources directly to vital support services, but it also will serve as an invaluable educational tool for the individuals we serve, as well as the wider community.

The planned 27.8 kW solar array will generate 30,581 kWh of electricity annually. This will avert an additional 47,099 lbs of CO2 from entering the atmosphere annually.

More than just a cost-saving measure, this solar project is an opportunity for engagement and education.

 

 

"At Covenant House our commiment to aiding vulnarable families and enhancing health is deeply intertwined with addressing environmental chalanges", says Briana Martin, executive director at Covenant House
