Whitecaps raise $21,385 for #BuckUp for Mental Health presented by Desjardins Insurance in support of Covenant House

$21,385 was raised thanks to the Whitecaps and to your giving, sharing, fundraising and Tweeting for the #BuckUp for Mental Health campaign presented by Desjardins Insurance.

These funds will directly support our Mental Health Services program providing youth with individual attention and care from our mental health clinicians and psychiatrists. This includes counselling sessions, group work, medications, life skills support, job readiness and recreational programming. Your support is helping our youth to recover from the trauma of their past and find wellness for their future.

On behalf of everyone at Covenant House Vancouver we want to thank the Whitecaps for all their hard work and their amazing support of us and our young people.

Thank you Whitecaps!

"I deeply appreciate the support you have all given me" - A young man gives thanks

Dear Covenant House,

In six days from now, I finally move into my new home. I have to say, I wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you. I want to take the time to thank every one of you for the help you’ve given me to get this far, so thanks. Now I understand I wasn’t the easiest person to deal with when I was in house, and I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but I deeply appreciate the support you have all given me to get where I am today. I’ll check in with you all once in a while to see how everyone is doing, thanks!

Best regards,
Young man

Thank you from young man

Hockey Helps the Homeless Supports Covenant House Vancouver

Covenant House Vancouver is grateful for the incredible support of Hockey Helps the Homeless whose $25,000 donation will enable us to make 424 contacts with youth in our Drop-In program! Our Drop-In program serves to make that first critical contact with homeless youth – introducing ourselves as a friendly face, and engaging them; offering services, support and information about Covenant House and our programs that are designed to get them off of the streets and break their cycle of poverty.

 Since 2011, Hockey Helps the Homeless has raised over $1 million for the Vancouver community. Net proceeds from the tournament are donated directly to local partner organizations that are dedicated to helping to end homelessness in our community.

Join us in celebrating BC Child & Youth In Care Week

Proclaimed by the province of British Columbia in 2011, BC Child & Youth In Care Week (BCCYICW) is a time for everyone in communities across the province to stand in support and celebration of our province's incredible, diverse young people in government care.

Youth in and from care advocated for this week--now in its fifth year--so their brothers and sisters in care could grow up feeling celebrated for their diverse talents and accomplishments, surrounded by a supportive community who stands with them. They also wanted to raise awareness about the barriers they face and fight the stigma that comes with being a "foster kid."

Please join us in celebrating this important week and these amazing kids!
