Kevin Ryan

Kevin Ryan is the President and CEO of Covenant House International, the largest charity in North and Central America helping homeless, trafficked and exploited youth. During the 1990s, Ryan spent nearly a decade on the frontlines of Covenant House’s work with homeless and trafficked children on the streets of New York and New Jersey before being appointed by the governor of New Jersey as the state’s first Child Advocate. He uncovered conditions of severe and illegal overcrowding at the State’s juvenile centers and helped to craft some of New Jersey's most important child welfare laws, including the Homeless Youth Act in 1999 and the FamilyCare Health Coverage Act in 2000. His work drew considerable national attention, including two appearances on “60 Minutes,” as well as front-page stories in The New York Times, The Star Ledger, The Washington Post and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
