Almost Home: A new book by Covenant House President Kevin Ryan & former New York Times Writer Tina Kelley tells the stories of six extraordinary young people who, despite almost unimaginable suffering and adversity, exceeded almost everyone’s expectations.
“What a blessing it is that hope, our biggest weapon against the streets, is so contagious.”
—Kevin Ryan, Author of Almost Home

Last night, 30 local executives, community leaders and celebrities slept outside in solidarity with the hundreds of young people who call Vancouver’s streets home, to raise funds for Covenant House Vancouver’s Crisis Shelter program. With just a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard, the “sleepers” braved -3 degree weather as part of Covenant House’s Sleep Out: Executive Edition.
On November 21st, executives, public figures and well-connected leaders in our community will sleep outside for one night in solidarity with those youth who may face many more cold, lonely nights until they find their way through the doors of Covenant House Vancouver.
