Fun & easy ways to give back this Fall

1. Thank-a-Thons

Thank-a-Thons are fun-filled evenings where volunteers get together and call our donors just to say “thank-you”. Because we are primarily privately funded, it is important for us to be able to reach our donors and thank them personally for the difference they make in our young peoples lives.

This fall volunteers will meet at Covenant House two evenings a week from 5:00pm-7:30pm. You can sign up to volunteer for one Thank-a-Thon or as many as you like!

2. Christmas Helpers  

Help us spread Christmas cheer to our young people by helping us during the holiday season. We need volunteers to help us sort and organize donations, help with season backpack task and even gift wrap. If you love Christmas and want to help put a smile on a young person’s faces this is the volunteer position for you. (Space is limited to contact us soon)

3. Group Volunteer Support

The holiday season is the perfect time of year to get your office/team/school club to team up and volunteer together. October through January is one of our busiest times for our gift-in-kind department. We love having group assist us with the sorting of our in-kind donations such as food, clothing, and household items. If you’re looking for a season activity for your group to get involved in this one is for you!

If you would like to volunteer or learn more about these volunteer opportunities please call Amanda Merler at 604-639-8920 or email

Hip Hip Hooray for Hype Hair Studio

On Friday October 14th, we had 7 amazing and generous hair stylists from Hype Hair Studio  come in and volunteer to provide free haircuts to our female clients. Not only did they give them amazing haircuts & styles but they put smiles on their faces too. The stylists also donated hair care products and clothing for our young ladies.

We are so extremely grateful for all your support last week Hype Hair volunteers. Thanks for providing our youth with this incredible opportunity!

One month until the 5th Sleep Out Executive Edition!

Our 5th Annual Sleep Out: Executive Edition will be held on November 17th! Across Canada and the U.S., dedicated executives will be sleeping out to raise critical funds and awareness for homeless youth. With only a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard, participants will get a small glimpse of what it’s like to “sleep” on the street. “Sleepers” will also interact with some of our youth currently staying with us and those who have stayed with us in the past. They will hear their personal stories of how they found their way to our doors and how their lives have changed since.

Click here to see who is sleeping out and support a participant.

This event always has a powerful impact on our participants, check out this video to see our “sleepers” share about their experience:
