Stephanie Taylor, the outreach manager for Covenant House Michigan has been honored with a special award for her amazing 20 years of dedicated service to the homeless and at-risk youth.

The Covenant House Michigan is a nonprofit organization that provides shelter, educational and job programs, as well as other support services to homeless, runaway and at-risk youth ages 18-24.

This house has come to be known by area young people as a place they can go to build a better future and be treated with respect and feel safe.

Taylor has done outreach for Covenant House Michigan for 20 years, and spends most of her time traveling the streets of Detroit in a Covenant House minivan, reaching out to youth to teach them about Covenant House Michigan and offer help if they need it.

“Sometimes they’ll be at their so-called boyfriend’s house, which is really not a boyfriend’s. What they’re doing is, ‘OK, you can stay here as long as you can do this’… they’re being trafficked and they’re being abused and we see that.”

For Taylor, watching young people get a new start is what keeps her going every day.

On Thursday, Taylor was presented with a Lizzie Award at Covenant House Michigan’s “A Night of Broadway Stars” benefit at the Soundboard at Motorcity Casino Hotel. The award is given to people who devote themselves to the mission of Covenant House Michigan and the people it serves.
