Covenant House Vancouver is committed to serve all youth with relentless support, absolute respect, and unconditional love; to help youth experiencing homelessness; and to protect and safeguard all youth in need.
We incorporate the principles of Immediacy, Sanctuary, Value Communication, Structure, and Choice, in all aspects of our programs and services.
Covenant House Vancouver is a trauma-informed agency. As such, we hold an awareness that the youth who come to us may have been impacted by various forms of trauma and believe that trauma can be both a cause and a product of homelessness.
As many as 40,000 young people experience homelessness in Canada every year.
