Art group fun in our garden

Art group fun in our garden

The young ladies in our Crisis Program had fun this past Saturday creating art. The art group was held on our porch garden and the girls had a great time drawing  and creating in the beautiful outdoor space.

Our youth hike Garibaldi with Power to Be

Our youth hike Garibaldi with Power to Be

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!  

Music to Connect

Music to Connect

Music is a shared experience that transcends economic, social and racial barriers. Music has a way to capture and release memories; process feelings and allow us to express ourselves. With my amateur guitar skills and interest from the guys in Crisis Program, we had our own Covenant House Music Group.

Thanks to hard work Jill takes a big step forward

Jill had a very difficult and complicated childhood, which ended up with her struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). When you live your life having experienced trauma, sometimes the little hills can seem like mountains. Jill feared being in public spaces, and the unknown.

A weekend of swimming, soccer and salad!

A weekend of swimming, soccer and salad!

This past weekend was quite a busy one. At one point, we had up to twenty young women here at the Crisis Program; so we made sure to run some fun activities to keep the youth active. On Saturday, we took some youth to the swimming pool in Kits—everyone loved it!

A youth garden project update!

The young ladies in our Crisis Program have been working on a garden project since early spring. The project has grown even larger than expected and the girls have loved working on their garden and learning about planting and caring for it. You can learn more about it here.

Here are some photos of the garden which is doing so well. The girls have been busy caring for all their plants, veggies and flowers!

Our youth experience camping & kayaking with Power To Be

Recently 5 youth and Youth Worker Darren went kayaking and camping around Harrison Lake with the support of Power To Be!

On a Friday morning, our  group kayaked across Harrison Lake to the Bear Creek Campground. Once there, our youth learned how to set up tents, and got to cooking some much needed dinner. On the Saturday, we kayaked up the lake to another remote campsite next to a beautiful waterfall. The youth loved camping out and roasting marshmallows on the fire.
