Founded in 1972, Covenant House has provided homeless youth with transitional housing, crisis counseling, and much more, in 21 cities throughout the United States, Canada, and Latin America. The organization provides a hearty meal, a warm bed, a safe shelter, and numerous services. Some of these services include health and medical care, high school education and vocational training, drug abuse treatment and prevention, and mother/child services.
Toll Brothers could not be more excited to announce that Christopher Gaffney, a Group President, was honored at the 2015 Covenant House Gala this past May.
Chris Gaffney, has served on Covenant House New York’s Board of Directors since 2010 and has been a fundraiser and advocate for the organization and for homeless youth, and he is now a member of the Covenant House Pennsylvania Board of Directors. He was also a participant in committees that brought Covenant House to both Asbury Park and Camden, New Jersey.
Chris has supported the kids of Covenant House in numerous ways: he ran five races in four years as a member of the Covenant House Home Team, participated in the Covenant House Sleep Out: Executive Edition four times in three years, and recruited teams from Toll Brothers to sleep out in five different east coast cities while raising over $90,000 to support the youth of Covenant House this year alone.
“Chris Gaffney is a true champion for homeless youth,” said John Ducoff, Executive Director of Covenant House Pennsylvania, where Chris serves on the Board of Directors. “Gaffney is the type to do anything for the kids – run a marathon, sleep on the street in the bitter cold, spend hours volunteering, or even just make time to talk with our young people.”
