Aviva And Covenant House Combine Forces To Help Homeless Youth

Stocks in this article: AV

Aviva USA and Covenant House today announced a partnership that will impact the lives of thousands of youth across America.

Covenant House is the largest privately-funded agency in the Americas that provides food, clothing, shelter, immediate crisis care and an array of other services to homeless, runaway and at-risk kids. Aviva USA’s two-year sponsorship agreement represents one of the largest individual funding commitments to Covenant House in the organization’s 39-year history.

“This partnership with Aviva is going to absolutely help us change lives,” said Covenant House president Kevin Ryan. “Young people served by our crisis centers in 17 cities across America not only lack resources to meet their basic needs – such as food and shelter – they also often lack the belief that anyone cares about their plight.

“Clearly, Aviva cares. In short, this partnership is going to help us fulfill our mission to serve these young people and significantly enhance the effectiveness of our outreach.”

The partnership for 2012-2013 will be formally announced tonight in Times Square at the 21 st annual Covenant House Candlelight Vigil, headlined by four-time Gospel Music Association female vocalist of the year Natalie Grant. The event will be followed by a sleep out by more than 40 CEOs who will spend the night in cardboard boxes on the concrete outside Covenant House’s New York shelter at 460 West 41 st St.

Aviva USA is part of Aviva plc – the world’s sixth-largest insurance group. Aviva USA is a sales leader of indexed life insurance and indexed annuities. It is headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, and serves customers in all 50 states.

The Covenant House mission aligns perfectly with Aviva’s Street to School program, a global philanthropic initiative that supports youth-focused charities. Through Street to School, Aviva plc’s goal is to help 500,000 children worldwide get off the streets and into school or professional training programs by 2014.

“We have made a long-term commitment to making a difference in the lives of homeless youth around the world,” said Chris Jones, Aviva USA chief marketing officer. “Our financial commitment is just the beginning of our partnership with Covenant House, as we also plan to make significant investments of time and energy.
