Our youth enjoy a Tree Top Adventure with Zero Ceiling

Recently our youth from Rights of Passage had the opportunity to participate in the Tree Top Adventure in Whistler with Zero Ceiling . Zero Ceiling is an amazing program that provides employment and adventure-based learning programs that empower at-risk youth and young adults to develop life skills and achieve personal growth.

The youth at ROP had an awesome day filled with fun and adventure. Thanks Zero Ceiling and Tree Top Adventure!

Hollyburn Properties & Covenant House Youth Housing Program

"For the past 12 years Hollyburn has grown a lasting partnership with Vancouver’s Covenant House non-profit organization. What began as a monthly clothing and donations drive, has evolved into a unique initiative to help local youth gain a sense of self-worth, self-confidence, and dignity as they transition to independent living. Hollyburn currently provides Covenant House youth with 5 completely furnished rental apartments (3 in Vancouver and more recently, 2 in Toronto) at a substantially reduced cost, allowing them to focus on finding gainful employment and improving their education. Once the program is complete, the youth are able to keep the furniture we provided while also being reimbursed the full amount they paid in rent during their stay."- From Hollyburn  Website

Danke Cushman & Wakefield!

Cushman & Wakefield Ltd. hosted a fantastic Oktoberfest themed client appreciation fundraiser for Covenant House Vancouver on October 1st. They raised over $25,600 in just one night through a Silent Auction, 50/50 draw and direct cash donations from attendees who generously contributed gifts of $25- $4,000, right there on the spot!

We would like to give Cushman & Wakefield our warmest thanks for hosting such a fun night that will elevate youth from homelessness and help them achieve brighter futures. Our extra special thanks to Cathy Furnival, Linder Walker & Mo Mojtabavi for months of planning this incredibly successful event.

We would also like to thank Senior Managing Director, Hendrik Zessel, for inspiring a culture of giving throughout Cushman & Wakefield’s Vancouver office. Hendrik is a mentorship volunteer for youth at Covenant House and is also participating in the third annual Sleep Out: Executive Edition on November 19th! Hendrik has raised $18,300 so 54 youth don’t have to sleep on the streets. His goal was to raise $13,500 to fund the entire Crisis Program for 24 hours.

Thank you to all of the dedicated staff from Cushman & Wakefield and their generous clients! You’re changing lives & making a difference.
