Recently two groups of volunteers came out from Raymond James to volunteer with us in our Gift-In-Kind department. The volunteer teams did an amazing job helping sort, organize and clean our incoming donations of food, clothing and household goods.
Thank you to our friends at the Ledcor Group of Companies for helping our youth achieve stable independence! Last year, Ledcor and its employees donated $65,482 to provide 10 full days of care to all 25 youth in the Rights of Passage transitional housing program.
Mesh Food Exchange has partnered with Daiya Foods to keep food waste out of the landfills and into the hands of the people who need it most. They recently provided our young people with delicious dairy-free food products including pizzas and cheesecakes.
Thank you Mesh Food Exchange and Daiya Foods!
Thank you to The Boeing Company for their incredible donation of $25,000 USD to support the youth in our Rights of Passage program! Because of Boeing’s generosity, 25 deserving young people will receive safe housing and support to learn vital life skills as they transition to independent living. Boeing has been a dedicated supporter of Covenant House Vancouver since 2006.
Two Men and A Truck has been a unique supporter of Covenant House Vancouver and our Sleep Out Movement. Our sleepers spend one evening on the street in support of homeless youth with only a piece of cardboard and a sleeping bag. It’s Two Men and a Truck that provide us with the much needed cardboard.

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.
