On Saturday, May 30, 2015 as Vancouver Whitecaps FC host Real Salt Lake at BC Place, funds will be collected for the #BuckUp for Mental Health campaign. All fans are encouraged to donate $1 to this campaign, with a goal of raising $21,000. All proceeds raised will be donated to Covenant House Vancouver.

In 2014, Vancouver Whitecaps FC successfully raised over $22,000 for #BuckUp. In addition to raising money for mental health organizations, #BuckUp aims to encourage the conversation about mental health and end the stigma surrounding it.
Discounted tickets are available for the May 30th match, with $5 from each ticket purchase going to the #BuckUp campaign. Click here to buy tickets. If you need help click here for instructions.
Watch out for more fun and surprises to be announced on our blog, whitecapsfc.com and the #BuckUp campaign page.

This toolkit was designed for shelters, housing providers, youth-serving agencies and other organizations concerned about homeless and at-risk youth in Canada. It outlines some ideas for transitional housing incorporating the Foyer model but is meant to provide a model that is flexible and adaptable. The case studies and resource materials are based on the Rights of Passage and transitional housing programs at Covenant House Toronto (CHT) and Covenant House Vancouver (CHV). #HomelessYouthSucceed
