Today we honor the memory and legacy of long time volunteer and the first director of Covenant House, Patricia Perelman, who passed away at 90 years old on March 20, 2015.

“And they felt welcomed. We cared about them as persons. It was very important to sit with people and listen to them.  It was comforting that I could do some things for people out of love and for no other reason than that.” – Pat Perelman in her interview with Julie Pratt, writer and editor of the Covenant House oral history project, February 2013.
