Home Sweet Home

Hollyburn Properties has been a huge supporter of Covenant House for many years.

Earlier in the year, Hollyburn  and Covenant House agreed to partner in a new and exciting way. Hollyburn agreed to provide a completely furnished suite in one of their buildings and Covenant House agreed to find and support a young person who could make the most of this "hand up".

After and extensive interview process, Covenant House selected a young person who is now currently living in one of Hollyburn’s buildings, while still being supported by the staff and resources that we provide.

After and extensive interview process, Covenant House selected a young person who is now currently living in one of Hollyburn’s buildings, while still being supported by the staff and resources that we provide.

The young person selected for the apartment is doing well, but one of the side effects of the stability and safety provided by the new home is the resurgence of past trauma and conflict. It wasn’t until he was able to be on his own, in a secure environment that this young person allowed himself the opportunity to actually begin the healing process. 

This is a common occurence amongst our young people; we see it often at ROP.  Once the stress of living on the streets is removed, a young person is freed up somewhat, and the past comes calling. A crucial part of the plan with Hollyburn is the after-support the young person is provided by our housing and youth workers

We would like to thank Hollyburn for providing this youth with a home and thank them also for encouraging their tenants to support Covenant House over the holidays with special Christmas clothing drives.
