Thanking Urban Barn for blanketing our youth in warmth!

Canadian furniture, home décor and accessories retailer,   Urban Barn   wrapped its fifth annual Blanket the Country in Warmth campaign, with personal deliveries to participating non-profits including 300 new blankets to Covenant House Vancouver. 

This year, the program encouraged Canadians to give the gift of a blanket, as well as share emotional warmth by sending a personal message through BlanketTheCountry.com. These messages were available for customers to sign with purchase of a blanket and then were shared with various shelters. 

Urban Barn has been an incredible supporter of our youth and our Christmas Backpack Campaign for a number of years and we can’t thank them enough!

Announcing Sleep Out: Young Professionals Edition!

On February 16th 2017, we are challenging young professionals and emerging leaders to spend one night sleeping on the street to raise funds to support our mental health and addictions programs. Many of our youth struggle with mental illness, often as a result of trauma they have experienced, and many are also battling to overcome addictions.

Sleeping on the street for one night is about showing homeless youth that they are worthy of unconditional love and absolute respect, and proving that we care enough about them to be uncomfortable for one night; to be vulnerable so they can be safe.

Young Professionals we encourage you to join the Sleep Out Movement and make a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of homeless youth.
