Your gift of love this Christmas can last a lifetime

Please donate to Covenant House Vancouver this Christmas

 Has anyone ever said something to you that you just can’t get out of your mind?

That happened just recently when I met a young man named Evan.

Evan told me, “I’ve been bounced around and in and out of foster care since I was little. I’ve never called anyone Mom or Dad. Now I pretty much live where I can.”  For the rest of the day I couldn’t get those words out of my mind:

“I’ve never called anyone Mom or Dad.”

Imagine a child growing up, never calling anyone Mom or Dad. Never having an adult like you in his life that he could trust and turn to.

Never having the safe haven of a mother’s arms. Or a Dad to look up to.

I’m so grateful that Evan found someone to trust when he found Covenant House.

Our Youth Workers welcomed Evan. They saw past his troubled outer shell. And they saw the good in him.

One night, Evan was in hospital having an extremely painful operation. He had no friends or family to come and take him home. A team of our Youth Workers went to St. Paul’s Hospital, collected Evan and took him back to his hotel in the Downtown Eastside. And together, they carried him up 9 flights of stairs to his room.

Evan was in tears by the time they arrived. But not just from pain. From the fact that – finally – somebody cared enough about him to help him. To carry him, and comfort him. Without strings. Without condition.

You send the donations that let our workers be there for Evan that night. You are the heart of Covenant House that keeps us alive.

Please take a moment today to support our Christmas Appeal, if you can. Your ongoing support helps us provide the unconditional love that kids like Evan have never had. And puts them on the road to a new life.

With sincere thanks,


Sister Nancy Brown, SC, OBC
