Program Management Team sends thanks to our Volunteers

To all Friends and Staff of Covenant House,

In honour of National Volunteer Week, we would like to acknowledge the outstanding contribution of the volunteers at Covenant House. Our volunteers demonstrate what it means to have compassion, humanity, strength, and kindness every day. Their countless hours of dedication make our community brighter for those in need. Their actions foster a spirit of inclusion for those youth that feel alienated from their families, their friends, and their neighbors. Our volunteers are not just volunteering; they are repairing a social fabric that has been pulled apart. They understand the power of their collective actions, and remind us of the endless possibilities that come from working together. From coaching recreational activities to preparing meals for youth to collecting donations, they make Covenant House possible. Without them, we couldn’t provide the services we do. They are an integral part of our team and a cherished resource, and so we thank them for all their hard work.

Thank you, volunteers, for everything!

The Program Management Team

Sending a big "thank you" to our Volunteers for National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

April 6-13th is known as National Volunteer Appreciation Week and Covenant House Vancouver would like to send a big "Thank you" to all our Volunteers!  This week our blog will feature all things volunteer related including wonderful notes from our youth, a poem and other great volunteer experiences.

Covenant House Vancouver Volunteers have:

-Donated 7252 hours of their time last fiscal year (equivalent to 3 full time staff members)
-Thank-a-Thon volunteers helped us thank 12,865 donors this past fiscal year
-GIK volunteers helped sort thousands of pounds of clothing and household items
-At this time we have 84 regular volunteers

Covenant House Vancouver would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of you who volunteer with us whether it be just for one afternoon or year-round. You share your expertise, passion, life experience and patience as you help our youth to become independent adults and we truly could not do it without you.

We thank you for all of your hard work and dedication!
