Covenant House Vancouver

Providing love and hope to Vancouver's homeless and at-risk street youth. We help young people aged 16 to 24 who have fled physical, emotional and sexual abuse; those who have been forced from their homes; and those who have aged out of foster care.

Continuum of Care

  • Community Support Services

    Providing an array of “as-needed” services to street youth aged 16 to 24 including street outreach and drop-in.

  • Crisis Program

    We have 59 beds sheltering 16 to 24 year-olds in crisis. Trained staff and volunteers get them the help they need, without judgment.

  • Rights of Passage

    Through this program we provide youth with safe, affordable housing and support as they transition to independent living.

 

 

Why we're here

 

The kids that come to us for help feel abandoned, rejected and alone. They've often faced terrible situations in their past. They are victims of physical and sexual abuse, they've suffered human trafficking, or they have witnessed drug and alcohol misuse by their family members. As a result, the physical and emotional trauma has affected them and caused them to flee their homes, seeking refuge on the streets.

 

We're here to fight against the crisis of homelessness; to give these youth a fresh start and a source of unconditional love and absolute respect. At Covenant House Vancouver, we're more than just a shelter or transitional housing. With us, young people always have a place to call home and a family that genuinely cares for them.
