Recently Vancouver International Airport’s (YVR) finance team spent the morning volunteering with us in our Gift-in-Kind department. They were an amazing and enthusiastic group and we had a huge pile of donations that needed sorting an organizing. We hoped to get through about half of the donations but this incredible group helped us sort the whole pile.
We want to send a huge thank you to the YVR Finance Team for their amazing support and hard work!
Recently our youth had an amazing time hiking Mount Garibaldi with Power To Be. Power To Be is a nonprofit organization that empowers people to explore their limitless abilities through inclusive adventures rooted in nature. Power To Be believes everyone belongs in nature and we couldn’t agree more.
Thank you Power To Be for helping homeless and at-risk youth access nature!
The COH and A Way Home released “Child Welfare and Youth Homelessness in Canada: A Proposal for Action,” calling for the federal, provincial/territorial governments to address the structural and systemic failures linking youth homelessness and the child welfare system.
Studies show youth experiencing homelessness are 193 times more likely to have been involved with the child welfare system. #YouthWithoutHome
