2nd Place Finish for CHV’s Youth Soccer Team

This past Sunday our youth took part in a Vancouver Street Soccer League tournament. Covenant House fielded 2 teams and one of our teams came in 2nd Place. The first place win went to a Portland Hotel Society team, but our youth were thrilled with the second place title! There was tons of cheering, high fives and many proud faces.

Another amazing thing happened as well: that Sunday was Mother’s Day, and one of our young people’s mom’s was out to cheer them and the team on. After the game, a youth worker went over to the mom to say hi and to introduce themselves and a very special moment took place. The mom was overcome with gratitude because we had helped her child and she was crying and giving her thanks to the youth worker. The youth worker was overwhelmed and had a few tears as well and it was a truly wonderful moment.

We are so proud of all of our youth, volunteers and staff who have practiced so much and worked so hard to become the awesome soccer players they are. Way to go CHV soccer stars!
