Covenant House Michigan Benefit Concert
Detroit based non-profit Covenant House Michigan provides services and support to homeless, runaway, at-risk youth (age 13-22) who struggle with a variety of issues: unemployment, inadequate education, drugs, gangs and violence.
A quintet of local bands are performing at the New Dodge to raise awareness for CHM and its services, which includes providing food, shelter, education and vocational programs for local youths. More than 54,000 youths have been helped since CHM’s seventeen year history.
