Thanking Visalus for supporting the health of our youth

Over the last few years Covenant House Vancouver has been lucky enough to partner with ViSalus in order to provide filling & nutritional shakes for our young folks through the Project 10 Kids program. Project 10 Kids gives the Vi Community an opportunity to share the benefits of good nutrition and a healthier lifestyle with our next generation.

Thank you ViSalus for  supporting  the health of our young people!

Young ladies have fun crafting together

Recently I came to work at the women’s Crisis Program to find a group of 6 young ladies seated around a table in the living room area. They were all smiling and laughing and working away on something but I couldn’t figure out what it was. As I went to join the youth at the table, I could see they were decorating some brown paper bags. They were colorful and covered in inspirational words and quotes. I asked them what the bags were for. “We’re going on an outing to the movies tomorrow! We thought, instead of buying popcorn for everyone, we would makes some snack bags out of the stuff we have here for people to take with them.” “What a great idea!” I told them.

It’s such a nice thing to see the youth come together and work on a project like this. To see them happy and smiling and enjoying the company of their peers, despite the challenges that they are faced with every day.
