Millions of young people experience homelessness each day. For more than 50 years, Covenant House has been giving youth facing homelessness a bed — and a chance, with support including skills training, job placement, and psychological counseling.

In this video, Jonathan Davidson, executive vice president and general manager of Cisco Networking, visits a Covenant House facility in Santa Clara Country, Calif., one of 34 such shelters across the Americas. And as Shelby Booker, Director of Santa Clara Programs at Covenant House, said: “We wouldn’t be here without Cisco support.”
