Choice is one of our five core principles

Choice - Young people often feel powerless to control their lives. They fall into a self-defeating cycle of failure. We encourage our youth to make serious choices about their futures. They must choose to change, believe they can make it, to believe that tomorrow can be better.

You can help our young people have a better  tomorrow. Give Today

Choice is one of our five core principles  

Thanking The Home Depot Canada Foundation for their ongoing support of our youth

On Wednesday June 15th, we had a great team of volunteers come in to help paint our Male Crisis Program. Over the course of the day, they taped, touched up and painted over 11,000 square feet! Our youth were extremely excited to have fresh colors added to the space and the results were incredible.

In addition, Covenant House was also presented with an AMAZING donation of $100,000 to go towards installing energy efficient LED lighting throughout our Pender Street facility, installing a new boiler for our fourth floor, and also to support our Rights of Passage program!

A huge thank you to everyone at The Home Depot Canada Foundation for making this day a tremendous success!

Matching Gift Challenge Goal Met!

This spring, a challenge was issued and our supporters came through in a big way for us. Throughout the month of June, Robert Little and three anonymous donors partnered with us to match all donations up to $110,000 – and  together thanks to our Covenant House Family, we reached our goal! Our original match was going to be an incredible $80,000 but when two donors heard about the Matching Gift Challenge they came forward and contributed an additional $20,000 and $10,000 to make our final match goal $110,000!

Thank you to all of our amazing supporters:  caring individuals, community groups, schools, foundations, corporations and more, who came together for our Matching Gift Challenge! You have provided TWICE the help and TWICE the hope to the youth who seek out our help and love. The funds raised will go a long way in helping our youth become healthy, independent adults.

A huge thank you to Robert Little and our three anonymous matching donors for their incredible commitment to our young people!

TELUS gives back to Covenant House & our community in a big way

TELUS   and its “Give Where You Live” campaign chose Covenant House Vancouver again this year and we are so grateful they supported us for not one day but two full days. During May and June, Covenant House was grateful to receive the helping hands of TELUS and their employees as well as their friends and families. 15 volunteers from the Lower Mainland donated their time to helping in our Gift-In-Kind department. They were efficient in sorting and organizing items such as clothing and toiletries that are now ready to be given to youth in need.

Also on June 4th we had 17 volunteers helping us with our roof top garden at our Pender location. Their help allowed our youth garden club to be successful in learning how to grow and harvest produce. We also want to say a big thanks to the gardening club at the TELUS Garden building, they have been a great support to our kitchen in providing fresh produce on a weekly basis for our youth meals.

Thank you to the passionate employees, friends and families of TELUS. It is obvious that you truly do care about those in your community and are passionate about supporting at-risk and homeless youth as they improve their lives.

If you or your employees would like to coordinate a time to   volunteer   as a group with our Gift-In-Kind program, please contact Amanda Merler by email: amerler@covenanthousebc.org   or by phone at (604) 639-8920.
