Help keep homeless youth safe & cool during heat waves

When we think of homeless people and weather, we generally worry about it being too cold not too hot but summer weather can have a negative impact on the homeless as well. Homeless people often lack places to get fresh water and areas to stay cool. At Covenant House Vancouver, we prepare for the heat and make sure our youth that are living outside have proper supplies. We provide water bottles and water, sunscreen, cool clothing and remind them to take it easy and seek shade when it is hot.

If you want to help, homeless youth this summer here are a few things we need:

Reusable water bottles
Bathing suites, flip flops and summer clothing
Monetary donations Summer is our busiest time

If you have questions about donating please contact or 604-639-8937 and to see a full list of needed items click here.

In addition, when you are out and about this summer keep an eye on all people and check in with them if they are looking ill.  When we work together as a community we can all have a happy, fun and safe summer!
