Fareportal, a high-tech, high-touch travel company that powers a next generation travel concierge, surprised the Mother & Child Program at Covenant House with toys for each of the children yesterday. The Mother & Child Program at Covenant House specializes in helping homeless teenage mothers through the challenges of pregnancy and parenthood as well as offering resources to create a brighter future for themselves and their child. Additionally, Fareportal made a donation of $5,000 to help provide every young adult in Covenant House’s New York City program with a gift card for the holidays.
“The Covenant House has helped countless young people out of homelessness and on a path to a successful future,” said Sam S. Jain, CEO of Fareportal. “We first began our relationship with Covenant House in 2008 and we are happy to support their organization in any way we can, especially during the holidays.”
Fareportal has been working with Covenant House for over 8 years and has contributed to a number of their programs. In addition to the annual Toy Drive, Fareportal has worked with the Job Training Program by offering workshops, conducting mock interviews, and hiring promising graduates of the program into internships and full-time positions.

Rodas, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Covenant House. “Fareportal and their employees are so generous with their time, talent, and treasure.
