On November 16th, 2023 the Covenant House, the largest charity in the Americas helping homeless and trafficked youth, named New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson as chair and founding member of their brand new Player Ambassador Council. The new initiative will be inclusive of sports figures who support the nonprofit and its efforts to help raise awareness and funds for young people facing homelessness and survivors of trafficking.
“Fighting homelessness has been important to me and my family for years,” said Brunson.
“When I learned about how many youth are struggling to find shelter, it struck a nerve. I am so thankful to have a platform that will raise awareness and shed light on the need to support youth who are striving to live their best lives. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of these young people who are some of the most resilient people I’ve ever met. Everyone deserves a warm, safe place to sleep. It is a basic, human right.”
