It’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

April 23-29 is known as National Volunteer Appreciation Week and Covenant House Vancouver would like to send a big "Thank you" to all our Volunteers! This year’s theme is “Volunteering, Eh?” and this couldn’t be truer. Covenant House volunteers provide our youth and staff much needed support and we simply couldn’t provide the services we do without them.

Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:

-Donated 11,399 hours of their time last fiscal year (equivalent to 5 full time staff members)

-Thank-a-Thon volunteers helped us thank 13,000 donors this past fiscal year

-GIK volunteers helped sort thousands of pounds of clothing and household items

-We have had over 244 volunteers contribute their time to our Backpack Campaign this past Christmas

- Our youth Mentorship Program has made 25 Matches in total since the launch in November 2015

-At this time we have 134 regular volunteers

Covenant House Vancouver would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of you who volunteer with us whether it is just for one afternoon or year-round. You share your expertise, passion, life experience and patience as you help our youth to become independent adults and you truly provide Covenant House with strong roots.

We thank you for all of your hard work and dedication!

It’s National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

Thanking Maple Leaf Self Storage

 Maple Leaf Self Storage is a Canadian owned and operated self-storage company that provides businesses and families in BC and AB with affordable and effective solutions for their self-storage needs. 

Maple Leaf Self Storage donated Covenant House Vancouver a 12 month lease for a storage locker at their Wall Street location. Since we have limited space in our storage facility this donation will be a huge help to our Gifts-in-Kind program allowing us to store larger items that will assist our youth on their road to independence.

Thank you Maple Leaf Self Storage!

Sleep Out: Mothers Edition raising critical funds for homeless youth

On May 4th our Sleep Out: Mothers Edition will raise funds to support our  Street Outreach  program. Travelling on foot, Outreach Workers are often the "face" of Covenant House.  They offer food, counselling, minor medical attention. They take great care to build relationships with youth, and encourage them to come to our Crisis Program or Drop-In Centre.

It’s not about pretending to be homeless. It’s about moms showing young people that they are worthy of unconditional love and absolute respect, and proving that we care enough about them to be uncomfortable for one night; to be vulnerable, so they can be safe.

Thanks to Xenia Creative Development Centre for hosting our Case Management Team

Sending our thanks to Xenia Creative Development Centre  for hosting our Case Management Team at a reduced rate.

Our Case Managers explored the way we measure successes with our youth and how we track outcomes. The setting was serene and lovely and the team even had a chance to visit and feed Charlie the pig, who once belonged to the father of one of our own CHV staff and now permanently resides at Xenia Retreat Centre.

Thanks to Xenia Retreat Centre for helping our Case Management Team plan and learn in such a peaceful and enjoyable setting!
